It sprinkled off and on for hours last night... It was so nice to lie in bed and listen to it!!
Yesterday's rain accumulated to 0.15 inches and after midnight we got 0.07 more.
Oh look! How very migratory for the first of September! *laughs*
They weren't honking like Canada Geese, I think they are Cackling Geese. They winter here in big flocks and I'm happy to see them.
hmm. Is this the same Hummer I've been seeing lately? I wonder if he's going to make a territory in the Community Garden?
He looks like a girl, lacking the black feathers on his face that would be iridescent in the light. But I think he's just a juvenile and hasn't got his adult plumage yet.
I hope he's successful in defending a territory here!!
There's a good sized Zuc I need to bring home. And that's the Butternut vine, with a flower!
Okay, here's today's work. I've forked and weeded a bit more of the front garden square. And then I sowed some Fava in the dirt to the right of the stick...
As I was working, Becca our Garden Coordinator, walked by with
a coworker. They were accessing the plots and doing
compliance checks and Becca stopped to chat.
What'cha up to? she asked.
I'm preparing for a cover crop! I announced.
Oh, she was excited! *laughs*
And when she and her companion had moved on... A Snake came from the path into my plot, just a few feet right in front of me!! How Awesome!!! Just a little skinny one, maybe 2 feet long! Oh, I wished I had the camera ready, but she was too quick.
