Picking peppers and other things

Weeding continues and has become 'mantra' like, but even my soul has difficulty being convinced that rooting out this grass is good for it. Especially as, just as you think you have it and pull up the root, it sticks a fine picker filament in your finger.












Some cocoa had finished fermenting and was put out to dry in the sun,













peppers  and cucumbers were picked and beans were weeded 














and this visitor stayed posing on the blade of grass, long enough for me to reach her. She has the most beautiful turquoise blue highlights which I failed to capture.

 Oh, and finally....
the mango thief has taken to stealing pen manure as well!

Hey Zooms, what is this I hear about a mango thief? Are you getting any rain? I am still in a drought and need some rain really badly. Mango season is on the way out now for me. I ate soooo many and gave away too. I have pa louis, Irwin, and Julie. I love the pa louis the best, then the Irwin and lastly the Julie.
