While spreading more compost today on our various crops, I noticed the deer have been in the field again!! Time for drastic measures........I check the electric fence, and discovered it is not working. It took a little while for me to get up the courage to touch it, not knowing what to expect? I am not only getting out the Scare Eye Motion Activated Sprinkler, but mixing up that horrible combination of eggs and garlic to spray. That should do it, with the addition of the terrible cologne and deodorant that someone gave my husband. Spraying it on strips of clothes and pinning them around our crop.
I have also learned these past few weeks to NOT be angry when we do not get any rain. We were spared the violent storms and tornadoes just north of us in Arkansas, Okla., Kansas, Texas and Tenn. I decided, after seeing the devastation, that our Lord gave us a water hose for a reason. I just need to put out the drip system earlier this year!! "Thank you Lord for the water hose"!!
For now, The Gourd Lady of Rocky Mount, Louisiana, that is!!
