|And the vicious Casey Caso|
The only tomatoes left on the vine are mealy or still green, Today I cleared out a raised bed and put on a cover crop of clover down, something I plan on doing every year but never seem to get around to.
The bees have decreased there number to prepare for winter, I am concerned about the amount of wasps I have flying around the ground in front of the hive and even occasionally entering. They bees seem strong, but I can't imagine why they would allow a wasp in. I am VERY reluctant to kill them, I really believe there is a delicate balance that we should not disturb, and the wasps have been so good in the garden keeping out your everyday garden villains like slugs and squash borers.
I have posted on some bee forums to see if I can get any feedback, I also snooped around the neighborhood to a home near by that has 3 langstroth hives. I noted many wasps patrolling the grounds around their hives too.
On the knitting front, I am still spinning my beautiful fiber, slow and steady.
I have also finished a shrug
But the big news is I have started a new cardigan.
Anastasia by Cecily MacDonald. I downloaded the pattern from Raverly today and have been knitting furiously since,
It is the most difficult but by far the most fun thing I have ever knitted. I love the Madeline Tosh yarn.
Also my sweet hubby, after all these years decided he wanted to learn to knit! YEAH.
