I made it through my big week of events and everything came together and was a big success – yahoo! While I was away working, Jason was holding down the fort. When I got home today, of course I went out to see how the garden had fared in my absence.
First the good news – yummy stuff just keeps on coming. I picked all this today, and more is sure to come this week with the forecast showing a string of 90 degree days.
And now for the not so good news. One of my raised beds was destroyed while I was gone.
We’ve had a problem this year with something nibbling on some of our veggies. It’s hasn’t been dramatic, but we did lose a cauliflower plant, a broccoli and a few onions here and there. But this was by far the worst. Our little visitor dug a ten inch trench and ate most of our lettuce, all of our newly planted kale, and many of our onions.
We think it’s a vole. Jason researched online and this seems likely. It may look cute, but I hate it already. Here’s a picture we found online of what one looks like. Look at it’s beady vegetable-garden-destroying little eyes. Pure evil.
And now we have peanut butter inside here, hoping to lure the little vegetable thief in. Stay tuned!
