I've been fighting a ground hog. I hate him and will surely kill him if I can catch him. He has destroyed many of my crops, just eaten them down to their stems. I have planted and replanted and covered and re-covered. Wire hoops and bird netting seem to be saving them until the fence is complete. He crawled under the row-cover but missed a few, I may get a few cucumbers after all.
The berries have been coming in non-stop since June. Two springs ago I planted another row of raspberries, just so that I could walk between the rows, a romantic idea I had. My fantasy seems to be proving hopeful.
