Part of our cat clan's original home
This limb (12" diameter) came down from the tree that spawned our current cat explosion. We knew it was ailing because the cats had taken up residence in the hollowing base, and eventually this limb decided to come down.
Of course, it fell across the road and we did not want anyone swerving into oncoming traffic, so I got to fire up old Gertrude (Betsy has been used way to much) and was please with her performance since she has not been used since we retired the wood heater last year.
Sorry I missed the garden club soiree. I was planning on bringing a garden book to re-start the tradition of door prizes again. It will be at the next full meeting July 8th? Is that right Chef?
It is Rodale's 'Landscape Problem Solver' by Jeff and Liz Ball. Hardcover 439 pages More about it later but it is a nice resource with organic solutions.
Squash bugs have not taken over my garden yet. They're trying hard with a Georgia Candy Roaster squash but so far we (the squash and I) are keeping them manageable.
I've probably delayed all I can in putting the eggplant out. Hope I have dodged the major flea beetle swarm or you will hear the cussing without the need of electronics.
