Saturday Gardening Thread: Special Visitors [KT]

Hello, Horde! We have some photos of very special garden and farm visitors today, some things to eat and some lush flowers, too. Next week, I think, an ummm. . . unusual flower.

The visitor above came to see Illinwek, who also has a garden update:

Garden is overgrown, getting some raspberries again, muskmelon coming along ... will have to fence out the chickens next year.

So here are some recent trail cam pics ...

Bobcat out midday?? ... not far from the house.

I have a pair of these guys keeping an eye on things at the farm for me. On evenings I don't see them I can hear them nearby. Very cool. Weasel


Admirale's Mate had a visitor, too. Also dramatic, in a different way:

Fortex, Gold of Bacau, Nor'easter, Rattlesnake. Fortex is the best if you have the climate for it.


Pole beans with pasta


Gordon has produced his first salsa. I think I see some pickling cucumbers, too.



Some of us may need the recipe.

S. Lynne has lots of produce coming on. More photos next week.

Honeycrisp apples. Fresh. Wow.


Gardens of The Horde

Blake, who lives in Bakersfield, sent in the following:

I've sort of nicknamed this particular crape myrtle "Sideshow Bob Myrtle."

Note, though, my neighbor's crape myrtles are also putting on quite the show.


Admirale's Mate has a couple of fine lilies:
