This little critter has enormous appetite. 

Just look at what he has done to the veggie patch.

My poor sunflowers, they were 3 1/2 ft tall

I haven't had any problem there for a few days. Started to think what I did was working

the red cabbage was pretty well ready for picking, at least he thought so

Getting a little to relax and put down my shields.

That's what I get. So I going to try to trap him. I didn't think I could bait the trap but after hearing what had happen to a friend of mine, it might work. She said she had one get up on her porch for a melon.

I saw him escaping the garden by going under the gate I use to get in and out.
Doesn't look like he could fit through it but he did. He ran across the pasture to the old homestead and slipped under the house

So I'm going to bait the live trap with a piece of cantaloupe. Put it near where I saw it escape from the garden. By the looks of him, he has been eating high on the hog.

Did you every wonder where that phrase came from. Well  years ago "high on the hog" were cuts of meat near the shoulder and neck and are the  more expensive pieces of a hog.  So if you could eat that part of the hog you were considered well off.

I'll keep you posted on this very devastating event. I just don't know how much more I can take without losing it. If it wasn't so blasted hot, I think I would not think twice about just starting over. Now the thought just sounds terrible and unbearable.

Till next time

  1. That is a GREAT picture on your blog! I am sorry about his attack on your garden. I hope you are able to relocate him to a better spot.

    I also love the quotes you have on your blog--but I also really, really like Laura Ingalls Wilder.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
