A Day in My Life: Garden Woes

Suzanne Going Green, That's Life

I don’t know how pioneers survived. My garden is enclosed, well tended, and yet nearly every week, there is some kind of middle-of-the-night invader who ruins a thriving plant.

Below was a gorgeous sunflower, just about to open, that suddenly had its stalk chewed about two feet up from its base. It seemed like the work of a deer, but my fences are too high for deers. A mystery…




I tried to do a repair job on it. Sometimes…it can work. Not this time, though. Alas.


Something else has been nibbling my zucchini. I’m thinking … raccoon. Any ideas?
