This Week


  • I caught two raccoons over the weekend.  I had to start setting out the trap because they aren’t being the friendly neighbors that I want.  They  destroyed some stuff in my shed, but the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back was when one knocked down Robin #'1’s nest and ate all the babies.  I have no idea how he got up high enough, but he did – I caught him in the aftermath.  Now I am on the warpath.  I plan on setting the trap every weekend until I stop catching any more raccoons  Angry

Not so cute...


  • I got my first red tomatoes!  And a couple beautiful cucumbers… I am so happy  Happy



  • And the other good news is - I *am* getting peppers!  It’s weird how they are growing… it’s like all the flowers were on the underside of the plant, so I didn’t see any of them.  The peppers are still teeny-tiny, but at least I know I’ll be getting some  Dancing


  • I had my first (veggie) BLT of the season.  I can’t even begin to describe how good it was.  I’ll be eating these at least twice a day until the frost kills off all my tomatoes… I wait all year for these  Love Struck


  • That all being said, I threw three baby bunnies out of my (fenced in) garden  Waiting
