Last Days of the Garden


Summer is over and my garden is pretty much done. I didn’t have to buy a bell pepper, cucumber, tomato, eggplant, yellow summer squash, collard green or Kale for months. We stopped fighting our resident bunny rabbit and gave him the lettuce and cabbage (he just wouldn’t leave no matter what we did) my husband even tried a Bugs Bunny trap complete with a carrot and he wouldn’t fall for it. Anyway the universe said share and we decided to. Plus he’s kinda cut cotton tail and all. Great produce summer any way!!

Happy New Year to all celebrating this week!

Critters – 1, Me -0


Something is attacking my garden and only eating my kale. This distresses me greatly. We put a mesh fence around all the beds but whatever is eating must be capable of climbing the fence (squirrels?) or digging under ( ground hogs?) Do cats eat greens? And why are they only eating my kale? Now I live in the City of Newark, New Jersey for those of you unfamiliar with the northeastern U.S. we are strictly City but I do live across the street from a large County park. No deer venture within several communities of me but we do have raccoons, opossum, ground hogs, skunks, cats, squirrels, and lots of birds. Haven’t caught anything in the act and I am very upset. If anyone has any ideas about the culprit and/or prevention let me know.
