I went outside with momma today to help her water the garden and as we were walking there, I looked down and saw some really BIG paw prints and a spine of some animal that didn’t survive the winter.
Momma said the paw print wasn’t a bear as there weren’t any claw marks so she is guessing it might have been a mountain lion or large dog.
When we got to the garden almost everything momma had planted was gone. Yup, there was no longer any corn, wax beans, carrots, cabbage, etc. All that was left is four or five little plants that the deer and rabbits didn’t eat.
I guess we won’t have to water the garden too much longer.
::sigh:: We were afraid of that, Puff. :( Is there a fence around your garden?
Hmm, well I guess dat makes da watering quicker. Da rabbits here only really eat da grass and clover, but we don't got vegetables and stuffs. Deers can be really stinky about eating everything.
oh no...that stinks
Serious, you pups be careful out there.
It coulda been a black bear, their toenails don't always show. The print looks more like a human's, only more round. A mountain lion would look more like a dog's.
My folks are SoCal transplants, too. Like your folks, they had their gardenin' challenges and learnin' curve, too. It'll work out!
Mom has had the same problem with her garden here. Mom plants castor beans in the garden. The deer hate them. You will find things that will work out for you.
YIKES!! Pweeze be bery careful, pupses!! An' sowwy 'bout yur garden.
Dat stinks about your garden... those deer will eat almost everything!!
