My daily dose of Abundant Permaculture published on Aug 25, 2016, during harvest activities.
My garden had several jungle areas this year. Lazy me.
Don, I'm like Joan. I save many of your photos in my beautiful scenery folder.
Don, your shot across the lawn to the mountains will make an excellent album. I save your photos for my benefit and pleasure. Excellent!
Daniel, a thorny perimeter of brambles around the outside, a tall stand of holly inside that or something prickly. Then your fruit trees and your vegetable garden should be protected from the roving bands of immigrants. Put up a massive gate as the only entrance to your Garden of Eat'n, and they should adequately keep you safe. A gaggle of geese could act as watch fowl, maybe a llama or two to spit and bite.
Spud, I think you are probably right. Let's hope the city gardeners don't use a lot of toxic chemicals.
There do seem to be almost as many natural pollinators in my garden as honey bees.
The nearest agriculture areas start about 3 miles from me. With a limit of 4 miles to find flowers, I still guess that most of my bees come from places in the city.
Spud, my guess is, with the 4,000+ elevation, the Snake River nearby and all the agriculture that grows near you, that you have a natural pollinator population plus the bees brought in for the farms.
The bee loss appears to be an awful experience and I hope many hives were brought in to catch some of the loose bees. The article said some bees found hives. I wonder what caused the crashes?
The drone photos perfectly suited for this task performed beautifully. I wonder where one gets a camera on a drone?
I found that article while trying to find where all the pollinators in my garden were coming from. I couldn't find out, but there must be hives in pocatello.
Joan, thanks for the Idaho Bee guide. It's a coincident that I was just getting ready to post a sad story about several trucks full of bees crashing and killing millions of bees close to my home. It was a year ago, but I just learned of it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3232745/Millions-bees-wreak...
