Nice pepper, nice mantis!Is your garden doing well?
the garden is tiny, but doing well, it consists of a five jalapenos, two green pepper plants, a big cherry tomato plant, a basil plant, some garlic, and some onions all packed into a little 4-5 square ft. area. without a well, and having 17 tree saplings growing in the yard, it isn't possible to water a larger garden area. if i get a well, inch'allah, i am going to turn the whole yard into a massive garden next Fall (our soil in my town is heavy clay, not exactly black nebraska soil). sometimes i head to our host family's garden, which has canal water next to it for watering- it is a massive garden (6 times mom's backyard garden).
yowza! what an abdomen! it looks like an orange slice in small zoom mode. lol i'll be sure to show alex.
that insect is badass
