Lots going on in the garden as preparations for fall/winter are in full swing. All the raised beds have been planted. Two beds are full of mustard to produce green manure for soil nourishment. The other two now have a variety of lettuce, beets, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and peas. The garlic just arrived in the mail today; so that will get planted soon.
My first pests in the garden are the mourning doves. Those turkeys eat the seed, make filthy nests, and breed like rabbits. As the sun rose this morning, I discovered the warm remains of one of those pests right in the middle of my young mustard. Yeeeek! I don't have garden kitties anymore; so what did the butchering? Perhaps a bird of prey swooped in before sunset. An owl? We have those in the neighborhood. Hawks hang out here too. As I looked for clues, fresh kitty poop (warm like the dove bits) was discovered barely covered by the path gravel. Filthy beast.
