We planted a tomato plant in each of our 2 Topsy Turvy containers. As they started to grow I remembered why they are not a great idea. The plant wants to grow up and the roots want to grow down. So the roots seem to get root-bound around the base of the plant. But we have wildlife that will eat the plant if we put it in the ground so this is our best bet….
so I thought…
HEY! WHERE’D THIS PLANT GO?
It was there earlier in the day!! How/who could get to that plant to munch it off at the base? That’s hanging about 14′ above the ground!
Well, at least we’ll have applesauce next fall; if Don can keep scaring the bears out of the tree.
I’ve seen this cute little muskrat a couple times and I saw a small river otter by himself a couple days ago.
I haven’t seen an elk in over a week. I’m guessing they’ve retreated to the mountains to have their calves. I think they can protect them better up there.
We saw this heron and an osprey have a little tiff over their fishing grounds. The heron actually made a pass at the osprey. I think the heron won.
