I finally captured a picture of 2 of the young groundhogs. There is still another young one and their mother.

The saga continues and I am sure they are playing with full bellies from my vegetables. I have faith that I will prevail in the end.

Thanks for visiting!

I found it!

I found the entry point of where the gopher/ groundhog has been entering my garden. For now I put some logs in the way and “hopefully” secured other weak spots in the fence until I can come up with a better way.

And yes….he ate more cabbage today. 🙄🤯

S.ugar H.oney I.ce T.ea!!!

A polite way of saying SHIT!!!

A gopher (or ground hog) that I have named Mr. Gerald Goph-hog has been visiting my garden off and on for about a week. He has taken little nibbles out of my sunflowers, strawberries, carrots and peas.

It has been my intention to make a gate at the entryway since I made the garden but due to work schedules and other projects I never got around to it.

After seeing that Mr. Gerald Goph-hog is getting a bit more brazen I made a point to make the gate this week before Mr. Gerald Goph-hog had a chance to inform his family of the new open garden restaurant in the neighborhood.

When I went out to check the garden I see all of my peas down on the ground with no pea pods on them. I was TOO LATE!! He must have told the family this morning. Out of 12 plants only 2 remain. I was able to save 3, yes only 3, pea pods.

So today I took all of the left over wood I had and old door that my mother had and I finally made my gate. It still needs to be painted. I left the side post long so that I an put a hanging plant on it in the near future.

The lesson I learned….Don’t put off til tomorrow what you can do today.

No Vacancy

I recently had some trees cut down and to my surprise there was a nice size hole in my roof.  This area has been covered by a tree since I moved into this house 2 years ago.

I notice that I have tenants squatting there that I did not know I had.  Now the new issue is how to get them out without spending a bunch of money.

Now that the house is officially and legally mine I and begin some of the long over due repairs and upgrades to the property and house.  I have a long ‘Honey do” list but no “Honey’ at this time.
