you can take my hiatus from garden updating as a good sign that the chipmunks have won. yes. they did. here are a few beautiful red juliette tomatoes peaking through the vines:
and, then they got eaten. by chipmunks. well, i did get to eat a handful, but mostly those little rodents ate them up. despite my bird netting and cement blocks around the edges of the frame. despite my pleas, pounding on the windows whenever i caught them in the act and rushing out doors to scare them away with screaming in my pajamas.
the basil is thriving however, and perhaps you shall get a picture of some homemade pesto…perhaps. and, wonderful news, the strawberries are a double crop – they are blooming again!
oh yeah, to insure that i actually get to eat a strawberry this go around, i poisoned the chipmunks. oh yes i did. 🙂
