I heard it through the grapevine , that Ms. Crew might have been nipping on the cologne I've been using to keep her smelling good so the deer will stay away (LOL). But I really think it was the storm that came through the weekend before.
Thought I would share a few of the other characters that hang around the garden. We have an " Garden Angel " that keeps a watchful eye.
Snoopy and Woodstock are out there too , flapping about , telling the deer to stay away.
A basket of soap hangs near the end of the garden that is next to the wooded area. Ms. Crew with her stinky cologne , the little garden angel , Snoopy , Woodstock and the basket of used soap pieces have did a great job at keeping the deer and other critters away from the garden this year.
But it's been so hot and we've had so very little rain , that the garden isn't thriving. The yellow and zucchini squash have did pretty well and the cucumbers did good for about a week..
But now the cucumber vines are dying , the corn ears aren't developing , the pepper plants are dying and the tomatoes are so small. It's really disappointing , but I'm Thankful for the small harvest we have been blessed with. We bought the okra and tomatoes from a local farm last week , that's what we made the salsa and pickled okra with. My Mom neighbor's helped her pick grapes over the weekend. I juiced them yesterday , so tomorrow grape jelly and zucchini bread are on the agenda.
