Well, now it's time to build up the winter frame to accommodate the taller pots, and a helper shows up.  "Need some help?", he asks.  Actually, he has an ulterior motive.  He's just missed being dinner for a Cooper's hawk and has dived into the frame for protection.  His buddy, a grey squirrel, climbed the cherry tree where the hawk was sitting, just above the winter frame, and gave it a hard time for a full 10 minutes.  (I couldn't get photos of this encounter because it would have spooked the hawk, but it was really interesting.  The squirrel was only about 3 feet from the hawk and was the aggressor.  The hawk kept shuffling his stance, but refused to give ground.)  Finally, the hawk gave up and flew away. --  Griff
