Dawg, I know that feeling!

This calls for a glass of wine, oops, I don't have anymore, oh well...

Dawg, could you put a cheesecloth netting over the bushes? I know that's what the blueberry farms in OH do to keep the birds away, although I've never noticed that being used up here. Don't know if it would work with ground-rats, though.

CG, the one year I put netting over the BBs, something got every single BB, green or ripe. I have better luck leaving the bushes uncovered. My other bush won't be ripe for a few weeks, and it's loaded. Hopefully I'll get a few!

We have so much wildlife out here, I just don't bother trying to deter them anymore.

Hmmm, maybe those blueberry bushes would produce inside your house...

We're sitting out on the patio under the umbrella with solar lighting, listening to the Cyndi Lauper station on Pandora. Nice.

Thanks DH has worked very hard on it. He built the fence, the raised garden and the patio.

GG, that is a lovely oasis. Looks like a great place to vacation. Any chance I could book a room?

Absolutely! If you ever find yourself in our corner of Virginia, you would be most welcome!

Angel Flight

Flew a patient from San Luis Obispo to Santa Monica for treatment of malignant Melanoma. Had to detour around the Sherpa Fire near Santa Barbara.
Hotter than heck, even at 6500 feet!
