Ruarl Living...

1 comment:
Living somewhat rural,,, up in the mountains, is not for the faint of heart and certainly not perfect for going barefoot...

I heard one of my barn kitties making a fuss,,, the fuss was over her separating a lizard from it tail... ewe... so after I disposed of the lizard,,, I discovered this... at first glance I thought it might be a young chicken ,  I am leaving it for hubby to see what his guess is. (to my friends who have chickens,,, I am so sorry..)

 I am not sure what 'it' was.... but it no longer is....
 then  as I walked back to the house I nearly stepped on these, yes,,, "Deer Raisins"... we have them all over the property,,, and sometime through the night 2 off our trash (empty) cans were knocked over.... Oh Deer!  and yes, these are a few reasons I don't go barefoot around here....
 but what really sent me over the edge was that the neighbor's pup came partly through the live stock fencing and got hold of another Gerkin plant... and this one had gerkins on it!  uugghh!
 between the Drought, Deer and the pup,,, my garden is barely surviving...even my grapevines and grape leaves are getting eaten,,, I am thinking by the grasshoppers....
all that being said... the radishes went crazy,,, and are now going to seed... but here is something I didn't know as I have never let them go to seed before... they grow little pods.. at first I thought an errant pea got planted... but nope,,, it's a radish... ahh the things we learn in the garden!
