Skink: Pretty sure it is a Five-Lined Skink

Every summer we see a skink and I think this is a same one, but it used to have a bright blue tail. As they get older the blue of the tail fades. The face of males gets bright red/orange during mating season!

The teepee needs two more posts (it has five now). It needs to be dug into the ground a bit more and lashed together at the top so it is extra-secure. Then we will weave garden twine between the posts for the beans (gold marie vining and thai purple podded yard long bean). Sicilian serpent squash is planted in the foreground (in the photo) and rainbow Indian flint corn is planted in the smaller round area on the other side of the teepee. So this area is the Spy Garden take on a “Three Sisters Garden”!

    Great pictures and progress! I’ve never grown any of those varieties of tomatoes, and I like to find funky heirlooms. Can’t wait to see more!
