Iím starting to run into that a little. Mine is not totally fenced. Not so much the deer yet, theyíre spitting out fawns left and right though. It wonít be long though that mama is going to show Bambi where the chow is. IE, my fucking yard. I get my revenge come fall though.

Right now itís just a BFR (big fucking rabbit). Caught him near it a couple of times now. I might have to take him out. Everything is looking ok, late but ok. I may have lost some Kentucky blues to wet weather?

We are at too much rain for the plants and garden. It has also been hampering my ability to pour flatwork!

We have an indoor hanging garden, indoor worm bin that we use to compost and create soil..

Recently we had some really high humidity and at first we thought we found termites, turns out they were non parasitic book lice. Set some traps, sprayed with vinegar and mostly gone. Introduced lady bugs to kill any remaining aphids and lice...

Next we are going to introduce praying mantis to eat the lady bugs...

Kinda reminds me of that song. Ate the dog to eat the cat that ate the ...

All done in half our spare bedroom and walk in closet ...

Damn. You got your own micro environment all in a bedroom & closet. Sounds like my basement. I think there may be some undiscovered species down there. I donít venture into the Temple of Doom unless I got to reset a breaker.

Looks like my green beans are a total loss. Bought repellent that is made of rotten egg white solids that ran me out of the garden.

I've been building a chicken mansion all week, big enough for up to 12 birds. Going by Rural King today with 2 youngest grand daughters to pick out some 'cute' chickens. The fence isn't up but Granny couldn't resist telling them that they could pick them out and they've yammered about it since

I have a raccoon loose and he dug up my best pole bean plant. I missed him last night, hi dies tonight. Eating cat food, tipping barrels, digging up plants. I should have put this in things you hate. ETA, he now sleeps with the fish.

We have spaghetti squash on the vine, green beans are flowering and several gallons of black berries starting to ripen. We also have rogue melons and squash everywhere.
