It's had a hard childhood, whatever it is or will be.

https://i.postimg.cc/W1wSwSqX/Garden-2021.jpg

One of teh rescues of 25-30 seedlings from the middle of South
Congress Ave that probably fell iff of somebody's car roof. It
spent 3.5 days forgotten about and rolling around in my backpack -
dirt everywhere. 3 days on my shower window sill with maybe 2 sq in.
of soil and still not dead. Transferred into "cactus dirt" and left
on the side of the house while it rained for 5 weeks figuring the
deer would have eaten it down to a nub 5 weeks ago like all my other
potted gardening attempts in the past.

I realized on Wednesday that it had 6 flowers, 3 tiny peppers
forming, and 12-15 spots where flowers have already bloomed and also
turning to fruit. Huh. Runted, but will bear at least 3 fruits.
Not sure it has enough foilage to support much more than that.

So I whipped this "cage" together in less than 5 minutes flat using
fine chicken wire, 5 landscaping tie nails, and a fan blade cover.
Just as I sat back in the lawn a chair to admire my handsome
creation and ponder its fruitations, 2 doe and an 18" fawn come
screaming around the corner from the back of house and bowled it
over. Those ****ers. So 3 of the nails now go through chicken
wire footings and two bread bag twist ties now secure the fan blade
cover to the chicken wire.

Still don't have a clue WTF it is, but if it fruits into something
edible (and probably spicy) my whole purpose in life will have
become apparent and I will die content with that knowledge. OTOH,
if it's those body snatcher pods I'm gonna feel pretty stupid and
gullible.

ObFood: Pesto and Pepperoni Pizza Burger for lunch. Sink is still
clogged harder than last night. Now praying for a new and different
sign from God than that bullshit deal I got handed down yesterday.

yep, a good fence is about all that works reliably here
and it helps keep the bunnies and groundhogs from getting
everything too.

the gardens outside the fence often get raided by the
various animals. sometimes i hunt a few to keep the
populations in check, but i don't hunt deer.

ROFL! My Garden is LUSH and healthy! Dump the pots and plant in the ground!

Base of Topsoil and 3 years worth of compost and dead plants. Plants grow best on the bodies of their own dead!

I do not plant Corn. Or Cannabis, although I could. Up to three Plants, for a specific patient, ME! Because my BJC psychiatrist knows Cannabis IS an effective Plant Medicine for Bipolar Disorder.

Unlike Narcissistic Personality Disorder as Bryan has, most likely,

More cost effective to just buy a new ear every couple of weeks as needed.

He also has the option of choosing the corn of the correct length, and
diameter, that he is looking for that week.

Any size will do. He said you just have to be careful how deeply
you insert it.

And any size makes a great display on the coffee table as a
conversation starter.

Since kuth is an engineer, I bet he has experimented with hollowing
an ear out, then inserting a battery powered vibrator. Gives Mr.
bumpy some more moves.

The obsessive horticulturalistas in here keep forgetting that a garden is a community thing. Which means they can eat, too. Not just us.

it certainly is, right now i'm sharing strawberries with the
birds, chipmunks and ants. i'm ok with some of that, but if
i don't keep the population down we can be overrun.

I have yet to have a critter bring me anything to share. So why do I
need to share with them? I guess "community" is a one way street.
Sounds like politics.

OK then, what else are you going to do to a garden? Wrap your arms around it 24/7 screaming stay away, stay away?

I was having a problem with squirrels. They love my property because I
have several black walnut trees, 4 oaks and a bunch of other trees to
provide them with food for the entire year. They also dug up my tulip
and daffodil bulks. I was ready to put out a bounty on the damned tree
rats but my neighbour got Dutch Shepherd last year and she loves to kill
squirrels. At this time last year I might see 2-3 squirrels any time I
looked out the window. Lately it has been more like one every week or two.

I'd gladly share mine, if the doggone creatures knew how to share. If
you let them go, they'll eat everything. Greedy little buggers.

My German Shorthair Pointer always seemed to feel bad when he broke
one of his squirrels.
When acorns are ready the squirrels can drive us nuts(sorry, couldn't
resist) Our neighbors have an oak tree and they keep a metal patio
table under the tree. The squirrels throw down nuts all day and it
creates quite a racket

I've never heard of a Dutch Shepherd. But I had also never heard of a
Dutch baby or a Dutch oven. I guess we just call them baby and oven in
the Netherlands.

Like my Lab when he got too friendly with a rabbit and broke its back
humping it.

My friend has a gazebo with a steel roof and it sits under a black
walnut tree. If you are sitting there when the walnuts start falling it
sounds like gunfire.

In Brooklyn, when Popeye gets horny, it sounds like 105 howitzers
firing. Shortly, all the wimmens is thoroughly ****ed by a tiny jew.
