Those yellow jackets sound bad.  If I had them, I'd try finding and spraying the nest in the cool of the morning before they become active.  Even then, I would wear protective clothing and headgear.  I read they will attack in mass at anytime of the day or night if something gets close to their nest.

Every year, I have paper wasps that build small paper brooding chambers under my eaves, under the steps of my ladders, and other places like those.  They worry me when they fly around me, but I've never been stung.  They're not aggressive.

Glad I don't have yellow jackets.

Yellow jackets drive us in; they are mean and will not tolerate a hand on a water faucet. 

A wonderful story about Rufus and the cow. 

These cucumbers have many blossoms but unfortunately, there were not enough pollinators to fertilize all the blossoms. Thank you for the instruction on how to do the pollinating job! Those that mature are huge and they are delicious. Nice and juicy, not a sweet taste and definitely not bitter. I ate a whole one tonight for dinner. I forgot to take photos of them today and will do so tomorrow. It was 110°F in the greenhouse today. I have fans going. The beans were a total flop as were the corn, and zucchini.

I can claim victory for the potatoes and cucumbers. Oh, and the tomatoes are huge; still not ripe.

Too hot out to garden now.  I'm inside with the a/c.

Yellow jackets are destroying the majority of my figs.  Never had that happen before.  I' ve been stung multiple times.  I put out a few traps but there must be thousands of them out there.

Spud I've never seen a cow and dog do that before.  They definitely like each other.  I'll see if I can upload a little video from my cellphone.

Rufus and the cow.  What an interesting meeting.  Makes me wonder why they got along so well.

Daniel, that scene of Rufus and the cow is delightful! What great pals; do you suppose the cow would go with you on your walk? Then your majestic ducks making their quacking way right in line; I don't know about the chickens, but if you put some grain in a pail and rattle it every now and then, the whole flock will get right in line. This kind of reminds me of "The Bremen's Town Musicians."

Hahahaha.......she's so cute. I guess they'll just have to visit.

Comment by Loam Gnome on August 6, 2018 at 7:19pm

wish I could!  she seems lonely.  very nice personality and tolerated Rufus's puppy antics!  But chickens, ducks, and puppy are all I can handle!

I guess you'll have to adopt her for your dog!
