My neighbor Eddy with the Praying Mantis egg case he found in the garden.
A praying mantis baby from earlier this spring.
From December 4th
Today a few of us gathered to work together in the garden to ready it for winter and to save the seeds of the last of the tomatillos, fennel, basil, and the marigolds. There was a thin layer of ice in my bucket this morning, the hard frost has hit.
We use heirloom seeds, these are seeds that you can save. By definition an heirloom seed is one that has existed prior to 1950 and has never been genetically engineered. We grow heirloom seedlings as an act of Peace Making and out of the preservation and sanctity of life.
While we were harvesting the marigolds my friend Eddie found a praying mantis egg case.
Today is my Grandmother's birthday.
She passed away this past October.
