Tomato Harvest

It’s definitely been a good year for the Tomatoes, except all most all of them ripened at once. I dried two trays of Roma tomatoes and made sauce from the rest. I was late on the harvest and lost a dozen or more to rot.

Mint Garden Attracts Many Pollinators

When I planted the mint garden last year, I didn’t even think of pollinators, but it has attracted a myriad of wasps and bees, many of which I’ve never seen. I have been able to identify some of them, but there is even a greater horde of them that are in the area of 1/4 inch in length that won’t sit still long enough to be identified. It is truly amazing! The mint is spreading everywhere!
