Neeners has been running hot and cold this week. She is either annoyed or furious. In order to settle her down, I thought we’d take a walk through the garden. Initially, not the best decision. “Look at that Morning Glory! I’m going to tell your sister to send those men in the white suits (those assigned to the Nursery Spray Crew in case you were wondering), and have them apply deadly force!!” I glared: “Oh no you are not – this is an organic garden, so we will pull out the Morning Glory – by hand.” She sneered. Then chuckled under her breath. She thinks I didn’t hear her but I did. If I see so much as one Morning Glory that appears to have been the victim of chemical ‘deadly force’, other men in white suits will be called, and they won’t be from the Spray Crew.
This foul mood all started earlier in the week when she visited her eye doctor. She was being bothered by a ‘floater’ in one of her eyes, and she went in, insisting he do something about it – immediately. Dick had the misfortune of stopping by right after she returned from her visit, and asked her what seemed to be the matter. He did this because she had a clippers in her hand and was hacking away at everything in her yard like there was no tomorrow. She replied “I told Dr. So and So to go to the Eye Bank and get me a new right eyeball. He said it didn’t work that way”. Off went another unsuspecting branch.
She eventually did calm down, but before she completely wipes everything out, I thought you might enjoy seeing how well the garden and yard are doing…so far. Almost time for Tayberries – bushes are loaded this year!
Strawberries are still going strong. I managed to eat these before the birds did.
