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.

I Love the Fall – How About You?


I haven’t had much to say in the last two weeks. Had a cold last week which occupied my body and brain. I am much better this week and again assuming a full schedule. Anyway I have included some pics of my birthday flowers and probably the last harvest of my garden except for my collard greens which will continue to grow to at least another month. I love the fall and all the things that come with it. The beautiful second act of our parks and gardens, the pumpkins, apple picking, an excuse to knit sweaters and shrugs and of course my birthday! I enjoy every day of it. Hope you do too.
