It's Blackberry Pickin' Time around here
Randy, it sounds like you have a large number of problems to contend with, but I would guess your large garden makes up for them to some extent. Some things will always survive.
Spud, you should have a nice squash to eat this winter. Vine borer worms have decimated both my summer and winter squash plants.
This strange looking fellow (strange to me anyway) is an Early Acorn Hybrid squash. I planted it late, but it will probably produce some because it's on the hot south side of the house.
When reading about Bumblebees, I came across the sad news that they are declining in number like honeybees.
Yes Joan, it sounds like we have similar weather, at least in the last couple of weeks.
Bumblebees wear fur coats. That made me smile Chris.
Bumblebees wear fur coats, so they're always earlier than bees.
Daniel, your morning glory colors add a lovely element to your gourds. Your photos reveal a lovely scene; your garden stories inspire me.
Randy, I like your story of the nectarine seeds and their progress. Glad to learn electric tape will keep raccoons out of your patch. I expect we will have to deal with that challenge as well. Thanks for the information. Your freezer must be filling up quickly.
Spud, this cold spell after such a hot stretch and yesterday we had very high winds. We have a lot of smoke in the skies. Does your weather sound like mine? We are mostly under the same weather patterns, I think.
Randy, good to know that an electric fence keeps out raccoons.
Thinking about the Bumbles, It may be that they are not only here in early morning, but all day. I probably only notice them in early morning because I usually only work in the early morning.
Yesterday was cloudy, cool, and sprinkling off & on. I briefly went out in the afternoon and saw a Bumblebee, but no honeybees. I read that Bumbles can function in the cold because they can warm their bodies and honeybees can not.
