Lower garden prep

Sunday, I was able to finish creating the raised planting beds in the lower garden (LG)…

The three sisters garden

Yesterday, I finally devoted some time to the Three Sisters Plot. Much weeding took place with the help of some friends:

Here’s the plot post-weeding:

The corn is stunted from the lack of rain in June. Squashes (both summer and winter) are just starting to produce. Greasy beans are climbing the corn stalks, but there are no beans yet.

Beneath the Three Sisters Plot are tomatoes, peppers and soybean plants. And further down in the plot is the pumpkin patch. Here’s what is going on down there:

Pumpkin!

FloJo and the Carpenter Bee

FloJo discovered bees this weekend…carpenter bees. These bees are big and fuzzy and like to hover. The last part is what caught FloJo’s attention:

Hello. What's that?

Hello. What’s that?

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I'll get you my pretty

Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough with my iPhone photography to capture the complete 360 degree flip that FloJo did… in mid-air…JUST missing the bee with gnashing teeth, and landing solidly on all four feet after the acrobatic rotation. She had some impressive air time.

Next time. Next. Time.

Next time. Next. Time.

See, post rotation. On all fours. Hope that I’ll be able to capture it next time, too. Circus dog.
