cody bear's friends


friends, veggies and beetles – trifecta!

warning:  this post has a beetle in it….with mandibles!

but give him a shot!  we’re talking about the weekend again.

basically, my friends have an amazing organic farm about an hour outside of town.  last year i went to one of their harvests and i had the best time.  yes, it was hard work, but the work felt good.  while you’re picking the AMAZING produce from the fields you have time to chat with all these other people that 1. are interested in local produce, organic farming, sustainability and the great outdoors, and  2. somehow seem to be like minded about dogs and the environment, and 3.  are just nice, fun people!

artichoke break:

last year i went by myself. i took my new and amazing friends, r and a!  and wouldn’t you know it, they were the belles of the ball!

as entomologists and biologists, everyone had questions for them…mostly about BEES! (which i love)  and they had fun, too.  in fact, one volunteer, prolly about 20 years older than he, decided that r was really the pick of the day, and…engagement to a be damned, …she was gonna make her move!  no harm, no harm.

its fun having a in the field because she looks for bugs with giant mandibles to scare me!

here’s the daily beetle!

there was lots of joking and talks in the field, followed by the amazing meal i mentioned earlier…but here’s the coolest part:

i’m reminded it’s never too late to make friends.  i’m so glad r and a and i have become such good friends!  and we have such a good time together.  what’s better than veggies, the outdoors and friends you love?  i guess the only thing i would have done was take cody bear, my super awesome dog.

it was just good…another good part of an awesome weekend…
