Sweaty now with sore back. 15 yards of garden soil spread so it's about eight inches thick with a pickup truck full of veggies, a rake, Harrell's fertilizer, and favorite liquid for "rehydration." Ain't planting tonight even though I feel like it because of the HUGE t-rex sized footprints in the soil from last night. Last thing I need is to feed expensive veggie plants to those huge vermin (deer).
Speaking of vermin, the worst type was seen in our neighborhood. We had an unkept house in the area recently rebuilt by the bank, maybe that's where those R**S came from. I brought it up with two neighbors and two customers, all of whom had seen them on their own properties.
I concluded EVERYONE might have them living in stone walls, streams, neighbors junk piles, everywhere. They're SMART. I bought a have a heart trap and set it up, can't wait to kill anything I catch. GROSS!!!
