NIMG afterthought...as the growing season fades into the "off-season", I had an afterthought regarding the "Not in My Garden" thread that Kim started back in September. My post was a little incomplete, because I forgot to mention one important NIMG for me-vegetable gardens. Up here, it's a challenge to raise vegetables, mostly because of these beasts.... .....and these..........these guys aren't any fun to deal with, either..........even these cute little buggers like to steal veggies, especially when they're small, like cherry tomatoes and tiny squash. I'm totally overrun by critters like this, and to be fair, they were here first! So to compensate for hungry animals, people up here must resort to this: a completely enclosed garden!Now this isn't necessarily all bad...I mean, look how cute this is with the "windows" and doors... ....but most of them look more like a stockade or prison yard, like this one. And while I have no aversion to fences, I just don't want to use up that much of my .6 acre for a setup like this, and to garden without it would be futile.
So that's my final "Not in My Garden" contribution-vegetables....love to eat em', just can't grow em'!
