Why I live here.
That's Bambi1 and Bambi2. They're twins from this year. The doe was off to the right and just as I got the picture she ambled over, bumped one and then they all three left in a flash.
So far they have left my garden alone, as well as the flower beds.
Speaking of my garden the fall veggies are near gone. The green beans out did themselves but I've picked the last and pulled up the plants. The squash has produced like crazy and is still blooming. The cucumbers have been a disappointment, but I got a few off of only three hills so maybe I did better than I thought. And the okra, AKA candy in this house, is still producing.
I'm already planning my 2012 garden. Cabbage and lettuce late March. Then squash and potatoes followed by tomatoes and beans in May. I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't garden. A few hours weeding and working and then eating and freezing is worth a $1000 dollars in tranquilizers.
Dinner tonight is okra, green beans, squash and onions, boiled whole potatoes... all from the garden. With some ham slices for the meat. And did I mention homemade yeast rolls?
"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt
"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
