Frost Tonight

The temperature is already below freezing so I went out in the dark to put on the garden sprinkler to keep my tender plants alive until the bitter end. It was such a poor growing season, some of my most productive plants still have tender growth and unripened fruit. The sprinkler plugged with ice so I had to clear it. The hose was so cold water froze in it at first. I removed the sprinkler head and managed to flush it. The only good thing about this cold snap is that hunting season is getting closer…

  1. Yep. They love people and their gardens, fruit trees and hedges. They hate dogs however but most municipalities with high density of people require dogs to be leashed.

    Around here we have herds of the white-tailed deer, (Odocoileus virginianus) they call them, meandering about, eating the shrubbery, and generally making a nuisance. They’re pretty brazen and I think you could bag a couple in my side yard with a 3 wood or even a 5 iron.

  3. I am lazy so I intend to hunt deer. I find a comfortable place to sit and one comes by…

    I haven’t hunted in about 10 years because the North is so large one needs a vehicle to hunt unless one has lots of time. I hate vehicles. A real hunter walks around on his feet.
