Today a monarch flew right in my face and danced off laughing at me. Has it been watching Venture Brothers?
Meanwhile, my one tomato plant, Early Girl, has cluster after cluster of sweet nuggets that get redder by the hour. And the volunteer tomato is nearly ready for a taste test. I see lots of salsa in the near future.
Of course, I don’t know if you should believe me.
Remember the giant bumblebee? Wrong! It’s an Eastern carpenter bee. Aside from the supersize, it’s not fuzzy all over like a real bumblebee. Those smoky wings are pretty distinctive, too. I guess I shouldn’t feel so dumb; I discovered I’m not exactly the first one to think it’s a huge bumblebee. And it’s a gorgeous bee.
Anyway. How are your tomatoes doing?
