June Garden Tour
I’m not one given to swearing. I’d rather growl or sigh VERY loudly. But seriously, these chipmunks are something else. They are ruining my garden. GRRRR!
War has been declared! Chocolate Taffy was kind enough to post this wanted sign…now if the chipmunks could read and then RUN far away!
They ate all of my spinach, beets, cauliflower, peanuts and peppers. Every. Last. Bit. Why couldn’t they just eat the yucky brussel sprouts huh?
You might not even believe this was possible, but those rotten rodents knocked an entire wall of chopped wood over! Can you even believe it? There is a family of about 5 living in this wood pile and not a one of them was smooshed in the crash. Figures.
So, they’ve been making a mess and eating OUR food, but there are a few good things happening too, so all is not lost.
Apparently they don’t like potatoes…
Or Green Beans…
I bought some more plants over the weekend but I’m afraid to plant them, so they are in the greenhouse. I bought sweet corn and popcorn, more peppers and 2 more tomatoes.
Apparently herbs aren’t tasty either, because our herb garden is looking really good.
The kids planter boxes are doing really good too.
Here’s my refurbished plant cart. I love how it turned out. I have little pansy’s, some other flowers I started from seed and chamomile in the pots, I need to add something to that little white pot still.
Chocolate Taffy and Mr. Taffy built this amazing contraption to keep the birds from eating our berries. There’s netting strung from the pvc pipe.
Mr. Taffy also built this nice support for his raspberries. I think we will get a lot of nice raspberries this year, there are many flowers appearing.
Sad little empty planter box…sniff sniff…chipmunks. Ugh.
So there you have it, a June tour of our garden. Thanks for visiting! In July we can sip on some peppermint tea and snack on raspberries while we are are looking around!
