A Bad Day With A Camera

Eat Yer Greens

We have a rat problem. Not the normal type of rat that most people think of, but the larger variety that other people know of as deer. They are not cute. They are not adorable. They are vermin that invade your yard and destroy gardens. They are why we didn’t even bother trying to have a garden this year.

We have had to resort to growing our few vegetables we have in planters up on our deck as the deer don’t seem to be able to navigate the steps at this time. That or they are scared of my prowess with a slingshot at close range. In any case, we do have a bit of lettuce this year that we are carefully guarding and cherishing when we eat it.

A full garden would have been nicer. Goddamn rats.
