Behemoth on the loose!

A few days ago while doing the dishes, I saw a flashing blue light reflected on a dish in the drainer. So I opened the window shade and saw four police cruisers on the lane in front of my neighbor's trailer. Cops were roaming my neighbor's yard, my yard, and the yard two trailers down! Turned out Shenan's behemoth has gotten loose and was having a grand time running from cop to cop, and staying just out of reach. After about an hour of Keystone Cops (AKA playtime), the cruisers left. I don't know whether they caught the behemoth (probably not, as they were using toys and not food), but a couple days later the behemoth was tethered outside with a new, thick rope lead. If you have a canine, tr

Good fences make fed gardeners.

At last I put up a no-more-munching-bunnies fence around my garden. It will keep the bunnies from mowing down my newly transplanted sunflowers, and my lettuce! (Now we'll see how tall my little lettuce nubs grow.) The sunflowers are the "Skyscraper" variety, and so will probably grow to about 10 feet, as the sky hangs low in Lopstick...

Bunnies munching much...

A few days ago, I stepped out to water my lettuce garden and sunflowers, and found the woodland bunnies had eaten my garden lettuce and sunflowers! And this little cutie is likely one of the culprits... As I approached, the guy scampered under my neighbor's trailer. The rascally rabbits have endless clover upon which to munch, yet then take favor in my precious plants. All's well, though, as the greengrocer has lettuce, and yesterday I planted fast-growing sunflowers in a bucket!

Next-door-jungle...

My next-door neighbor hasn't mowed her yard since last year... and now, with the record-breaking heat and humidity, a once scrabbly patch of ground has grown into a thick, lush wilderness. Tall grass and reed completely fill the expanse, and some of the vegetation is now taller than her car. I managed to get a pic before I heard a muffled barking coming from the center of the jungle. Peering into the yard, I didn't see her mammoth canine, just a clump of quivering, overgrown grass. Nevertheless, I turned on my heel and hurried into my backyard, where I took a pic of her trailer... ...or the vines engulfing her trailer.

Garden mutants...

These frilly things popped up in my garden seemingly overnight. At first I thought they were wandering aromatic herbs (from the seeds I planted in trays), but they have no scent (yet). I flipped through a bunch of garden plant pics online, and the closest matches are asparagus and the common fern. Might a couple of asparagus plants hooked up with a couple of ferns in my garden? If so, how did they get here? The only walking plant I know of are walking onions...
