I mean, it's been two weeks since Susie and I decided (challenged? dared? how did it go down, anyway?) we should each start a garden blog. And even though I've been working on this silly thing for two weeks now and haven't posted anything, I think I'm still going to beat her to the chase (giggle).
So enough already. My first post is:
Somebody's Been Eating My Zucchini!Well, the outside, anyway. I prefer my zucchini unpeeled (and fully grown, thank you), so I went out to see if I could catch something in the act, even though it was completely dark. (That's how I caught the possum eating my seedlings a few weeks ago.) The autofocus didn't want to work, so eventually I gave up and went back inside.
Most of the photos were too blurry to see anything, but this one was clear enough:
Do you see it? It's a snail! Easily remedied with some beer traps, or the Rabbit Hill diatomaceous earth in the shed (once the soil dries out). The netting purchase can wait.
Oh, and it rained today! Hooray! I was so excited, I went outside and took a picture of it. Hey, we're having an Exceptional Drought here in Travis County. A good gullywasher is worth blogging about.
