This is a 50 foot side that needed the chicken wire. I did have a bit of a start when I came around to this side. I had just finished wiring the 30 feet at the end and to the left. I had been working on the short side for about 3 hours, moved the wire, milk crate stool, and tools around to roll out the wire for this 50 foot side. I was all concentration when I sat down on the milk crate when I happened to look into the garden: a skunk was nosing around the veggies! How it got in and how long Mr. Skunk was mosing around was a mystery. lol His tail was down and can only assume he did not consider me a threat. I picked up my tools and left the area. I was tired and my hands hurt anyway.
Could this be what is eating the radish and blackeyed pea leaves down to the stems? If Mr. Sparrow and his sisters, brothers and cousins are dining on the leaves, well, have at it! I'll plant more.
BTW, pray that we get rain. Texas is in a horrible drought. I'm sure you've seen the news that over a million Texas acres are burning. We've had cloudy skies for weeks but no rain. Ok, since January 15 of this year, last week we had a little less than 2/10's of an inch.
Until next time, God bless.
