This morning was really busy for me in the garden. The zucchini plants started to get that gross white mist over all the leaves and then just looked wilty and gross. Honestly, they have given and given all summer, and really didnt owe me a thing, so I ripped them all out (there were 4), and then too the remnants of a delica squash that produced 2 and then died. When I pulled all these ground covering plants out, it revealed a couple of small bean plants i had forgotten about, each with a couple of green beans. I picked/ripped out those too. Then I picked some peppers. Then I hunkered down to pick a lot of cherry tomatoes. When I looked up, I saw this:
Even though he has had the ability to jump the knee high fence all spring and summer, today was the first day Murph decided to come into the garden (he was never being kept out, the fence was for bunnies).
Here he is again, protecting the strawberries.
