(The backyard which was formerly mud is now green. The grass seed grew, the flowers, pumpkins and gourds are beginning to grow).
So, Satch and I went in search of some fallen branches...some Y shaped and some straight. I hammered the Y shaped branches into the ground to create posts for a rustic twig garden fence to protect our seedlings from any potential "short cuts".
I gave Satch a rubber mallet to "help" and he walked straight over to the clay bowl that we use to feed chipmunks and other creatures.... and whacked it.
I showed him the huge crack and explained that it will eventually split in half and when it does we will no longer have a bowl for acorns to feed the critters. He was apologetic, and I tried not to be too angry about it because at that very moment I remembered the time I shot out one of the garage windows with my slingshot.
