Dog Days in the Garden


 Cardinal... gonna pick her own corn?


Naw, she's hunting caterpillars!


 These hummingbirds are so sweet....


So cute!


 A monarch! I'm seeing them a number of times this summer...


If the monarchs would only find the milkweed... being enjoyed by the black form tiger swallowtail.


 Picked a 23 pound watermelon this morning for breakfast...


These watermelon are supposed to be new world melons...

In the early 1920s, Art Combe, a Southwestern plant expert and amateur prospector found a small woven pot filled with bright red watermelon seeds in an abandoned sandstone cave in Arizona’s Mogollon Rim. The red seeds are believed to be hundreds, if not thousands, of years old!

I keep trying to find stuff that will tolerate the conditions out here... There is a bit of difference between drought tolerant and... humidity and drought tolerant...


 Row of bean tepees, and a row of green striped cushaw.

4 squash!

I had a chicken problem... I was finding feathers on the ground, and seeing fewer birds... I think this raccoon was responsible...
