Midsummer Vegetation

Photo by SnaggleTooth July 2010

I've been having alot of fun with Blogger Errors on my browser. I would've posted alot sooner, but again, I'm wasting all my free time crashing out in the editor. Guess it'll wait another day...
Post Pre-dated:
The marsh grass across the parking lot from fav beach is tall n beautiful, this year full of the wild HogWeed blooms.
Photo by SnaggleTooth July 2010I finally have a red root resembling an edible beet out on the deck! Don't know how much longer I should wait to pick it. The seed envelope states they grow 3 inches across. It's half that size. Even tho it's covered with hardware wire next to the white turnips, I'm paraniod the critters will get it before me!
Photo by SnaggleTooth July 2010The squirrels chewed up half of my Brown-Eyed Susans this morning. (Before munching pic here). Earlier this week they killed off the Canterbury Bells perrenials I've had untouched for years (same container). So today I wasted another fresh garlic clove to cut-up out there to slow them down.
If I hadn't chicken wire n hardware wired most of the containers- I bet most would be all dug up by now...
I'm glad they're leaving the pretty petunias alone at least...

Those rascally squirrels! They'd better leave your beets alone! They've taken a liking to my lilies this year - sheared a whack of tops off. I guess they think we're kind enough to plant a smorgasbord just for them! I love the field shot - the perspective is beautiful!

Fire the cat
don't feed
the dog
and make
your kids
stay out there
24 hours
a day
to play

Never mine just post this poem out there and you'll hear them dying laughing at the dumb Okie.

Talon, My Lilly bulb from last year dissappeared this spring too- Thats a huge marsh with six-foot-tall grass! I like walking down the path, but the bugs are very treacherous-

Ellis, The squirrels just like to torture me for not tossing bread from work out the window sooner- They do get fed in a different area-
Makes me feel like Grannie Klampett chasing crittters away with the shot gun- but I use the water squirt bottle!
24 hour s is what It'd take -
Cute poem
