Digging in the dirt

Gorgeous autumn days here. We discovered a hidden pumpkin in the front yard much to the delight of the girls. This week it is just beginning to turn from green to orange. I also propagated buckets and flats of hydrangeas and Thuja green giants this week. My two little buddies Shadow and Stripey follow me everywhere in the front yard. They especially love trips to the chicken yard where they grab an extra little bit of food when we dump the chicken bucket.

I have spotted several large mantids- we hatched a bunch this spring. They seem to prefer all the gourd and pumpkin vines that have volunteered themselves in the front yard they’re all over those right now.
