–I replanted my squash and cucumbers. Not a single seed had sprouted. This doesn’t seem like a good sign to me, but this afternoon I dutifully replanted and hope the reason for no sprout was only because of the cold weather.
–I cleared out my corn plot this afternoon. I hope to plant tomorrow. I don’t plant a lot of corn and I’ve found that the most efficient way for me to plant is to heavily mulch the garden plot. This involves extra initial labor, but much less later weeding. I never have time to weed.
I’m already in general despair over my corn. Last year my first corn planting was cruelly devoured by voles or moles. I planted again, but my harvest never really recovered. I was hoping that this year the little rodent things would have moved onto more pleasant climes, but noooo. When I was pulling up weeds today I discovered rodent tunnels galore. Oh yeah, these creatures had their thieving routes all planned out. It doesn’t take a genius to see what will happen, and I’m stumped about how to prevent the outcome.
Pack the garden with dynamite and hope I blow the moles and voles to kingdom come? Right now I can only think of planting and hope that somehow all the corn sprouts before the rodents stuff themselves.
Ha ha. Very funny, I know.
