Annihilation. My babies must be protected from large rodents.


They are as much a part of us as sleeping.

Last night I dreamt I was in a hotel room staring out at the sea.

The hotel room caught on fire. I escaped through a wall of flame to stand in the parking lot.

Yay! I survived.

Only to look out across the calm sea to witness an EXPLOSION and twin mushroom clouds.

I had the distinct thought “I hope somebody had the presence of mind to have already pushed our button” then I awoke.

Super start to morning!

I promptly woke up and googled sea, fire and world annihilation.

I knew this meant only one thing.

It was a sign.

Today I was to protect my babies before they were gone.

So I bought these and ringed their pen in it.

Sweeney’s Deer Repellent in no way asked me to do this. I’m just some crazy lady in Central Georgia trying to keep her garden safe.  And these things work!

It had been awhile since I had changed out the “bells” so after my foreboding dream, I did so today.

Here is some of my corn. Teeny things they are.


So now that I know my corn’s crib is guarded, hopefully my dreams will be less explosive tonight.

What about you? How do you protect your garden? Other than dreaming about nuclear war.

    I’m so impressed that you can actually grow REAL corn! Everything I try to grow dies which does not put me in my happy place. Oh well.

    I will continue to admire people like you and eat the corn that other people have grown.

    Love your blog and have had a good time poking around here!

      Thanks Becky. Though I had horrible luck with lots last summer, our corn was awesome. We just had the last bit the other night. But it was an utter failure the year before. So who knows? But I do love my garden.

    I am new to gardening. Recently, I have planted rose and cumin leaf tree. I try to treat them with pesticides and ensure that cobwebs do not enter my garden. I hope I can learn more about gardening and get trained in the art.

    Once I’ve dreamed about a nuclear strike too, I was in a jungle when the bomb exploded. I could seen the mushroom-shaped cloud as well, and I felt I my skin was burning. I was a terrible nightmare.

      No doubt Anna, it’s not fun to dream about mushroom clouds. I’ve done it so much that I usually wake up right after. Then stay awake wondering why I dreamed about that/

  4. Aw, the things we do as kids to get attention. What a sweet story. I would have played with you!!!!
