Now, moving on to my garden progress, or digress, depending on how you look at it. We have a very wiley gopher! He has managed to eat from the roots up, FOUR of my zucchini plants, and has impaired the progress of my cucumbers and several other things. Greg has set the traps, over and over, and each time, he gets the bait, and trips the trap, but escapes!!!! I am about ready to throw in the hoe!!! But I will keep trying to catch the little varmint. The other day, I was out watering, and I noticed fresh mounds of dirt being pushed up, literally at my feet. I stood there, waiting for him to reveal his ugly zucchini eating self to me, and he did....just long enough to poke his vicious little head up and give me the finger!!! I am going to get you yet, you nasty gopher!!!!!!!
Corn is not quite as high as an elephant's eye, but getting there. Many of the stalks have several ears of corn on them.
This is my ever expanding patch of watermelons. NONE of the pumpkins have made it. I planted two different types, in two different locations and at different times. But all have germinated, then turned brown and withered away? A mystery???
