Garden Party Disaster
Yesterday was our "Lilac Tea". The night before, after my wood pile fell over in my woodshed and probably before a small herd of heifers spent all night cavorting in the middle of my vegetable garden, we had about 4 inches of wet snow which didn't help my lilacs one bit. I lost about a dozen plants which I haven't had time to clean up yet. The thing that irritated me was that someone or at least two people walked through my vegetable garden stepping on every baby beet and baby carrot in two fifty foot rows which were raised beds. Also someone else broke off two leaves of my special ornamental rhubarb which Bill Noble gave me to (I think) wipe dog excrement off their feet.
