Houston, We Have A Problem
First, I want to show you some pics of our garden. This is a petunia that self-sowed in this pot from last year.
Our dahlias are really producing right now. They always do well in the Fall. This year they are upright because I stuck tomato cages in the ground when they came up.
This fuzzy pic is my one and only sweet potato vine, and it's huge.
Speaking of huge--Elephant Ears! Each leaf is about half my height or more. AND, speaking of Fall.....
We have a problem---a mouse--our yearly, Fall problem. We haven't been able to catch it because it found a better food source--my pincushion. I put rice in the bottom part to give it weight, and the rascally varmint found it. Guess I'll have to repair it and replace the rice with B-B's, or crushed walnut hulls from the pet store (after I spray it with alcohol, that is. Uck!).
