Can you see the hole? Below the marigolds, and under the shadow of the onions. That must be where my toad lives.
Either that or a chipmunk has to burrow. If that is the case, I’ll be spreading Critter Ridder all over. And if that doesn’t work, I’m going for the big guns. Coyote Urine!
That should keep him out!
Some other critters I have found in the garden this past 2 weeks…
Perhaps feathers from a Canadian goose. They are EVERYWHERE these days and I have no doubt they are capable of trying to reach over my fence and nibble on something.
Perhaps the work of a little boy?!? Not sure if the basil (upper left) will make it. Time will tell.
And look who we have here. Hello, Mr. Rabbit.
I dare you to try to get my lettuce. I double dog dare you!!!
(Sorry about the fuzziness. They were taken from inside the kitchen window. I’m off to get some Windex now.)
Oh man. It’s so close I can almost taste it!
I’m surprised that Steve hasn’t started pinching off leaves for his sandwiches. I bet he’ll read this and start next week!
The New Garden
There is just something basic and fundamental about tilling the earth, planting seeds and growing your own food. Something nostalgic.
So here is our new garden. Planted while drizzling. Because once I start something, I have to finish.
And the tomato plants in their new home. Now grow up big and strong, OK?!?
That’s it from me.
