Tomato-Tomahhto


I've done more gardening this year than in the last 3 years and my back is telling me ENOUGH! Here is Roger's tomato plant. It's grown a lot since he planted the little thing a couple of weeks ago. There are a large number of bunnies in the yard who are keeping a close watch on it. They are waiting for the darling little tomatoes to appear so they can have a special luncheon party. Seriously, we have a Momma bunny and two small bunnies who come out daily and eat bird seed. Naturally they prefer the Goldfinches thistle seed at $14.00 for 2 lbs. to the rather plain regular bird seed of the common kind. Good thing I love watching them. We are not serious gardeners here with vegetable patches and such. We realize that we are out-numbered and out-cuted by our furry garden friends. The word is out and we have no dogs to deter their fun so, essentially, this is critter paradise. Yesterday the chipmunk stretched his little self and ate Roger's blueberry flowers. We're all about the amusement factor here. The geraniums are going in the porch planter boxes since they like a lot of sun.
I'm not getting much done on the sewing front since the planting is causing me a lot of discomfort in the back and sciatica area. The one thing I'm working on I really can't show since it is one of the two gifts I'm going to finish for gifts.
I must go and work on those things while I can sit comfortably. It doesn't last long. I'm going to be one of those old ladies who carry around a poofy little pillow for my behind. I should make myself one.
Time for a cuppa tea and a bite for lunch. Come on over and join me!

I'm on my way! Hope your bum feels better. If not, I'll send you a Whoopie Cushion. Do they still make those?

Me too,Dee, I'm on my way to have a bite of lunch with you *VBS* You know somebody has to be the one who pampers our wildlife and cares for them. There's a lot to be said for being a friend to animals. Sharing is good *VBS*
P.S. LOVE the setting you chose for the log cabin blocks!! Hugs, Finn

How is it they are eating goldfinch seed? Ours is to high for bunnies to get to and goldfinch usually eat upside down.
I would put food out for the bunnies and put some coyote urine around your plants you don't want eaten. You can still watch and they don't eat the tomatoes... it works for chipmunks, too. They stay away from that smell!

Thank you, I'd love to join you for lunch! We could sit and watch the critters together!

Oh those bunnies! Wouldn't it be nice if we could reason with the critters . . . . get them to understand, we are willing to share - if only they will leave just a little for us, too *s*
