Harvest Monday 9.9.13

Oh what a Monday it is!
This is definitely the top of my harvest weeks. What I am harvesting today is pure, sheer, genuineness. OK. Maybe not but I sure do wish I had a way to keep what I am harvesting today. BECAUSE today I am harvesting....
Look deep into my foliage....
That's right! Thursday evening or Friday morning a swarm of bees showed up. Today they are still here and they can't be left here. This is at my work and there are far too many people here. People who like bug spray. I'm currently waiting for the Beekeeper to show up. Like I said - I just wish I had a way to keep them for myself. It would be so nice to have these wonderful workers at my house!

I harvested a handful of blackberries while I was working outside this weekend. The other thing I harvested this week was a rogue pomegranate. It was growing on the wrong side of the fence. I didn't even know it existed until I went out front to do some cleaning up in the hibiscus bushes. :-)

I <3 surprises!
I really do, and this weekend I got 2 great ones!
Now, if the corn I sowed would just show up.... WAHHHHH....
See you soon!


  1. Took me awhile to see the bees in your foliage but once I did, wow, that's a lot of bees! Some beekeeper is going to love that swarm. Love blackberries and that pomegranate is a beauty.

  2. Oh I would love to have pomegranates! What a wonderful surprise!

  3. I did not get a single blackberry this year, the birds got to them all before I had a chance.

  4. I thought about beekeeping but it seemed complicated, the hive, the clothing, fighting lice and diseases, feeding them over the winter, etc. I guess the experience to make it work would be nice. How great to find the pomegranate.

  5. Oh, the bees! Thank you for working so hard to keep them safe!!!

    And that pomegranate! Oh man...I would be in heaven!
