Katie and I are getting (more) serious about our backyard garden this year. To help keep the plants watered, we installed a drip irrigation system last weekend. Today I pruned the berry bushes and grapevines, which hopefully will produce some fruit this year, and we are growing heirloom vegetable and herb seedlings inside under a light.
We thought they were too cute to be rats. We thought we had field mice eating from our compost pile. We were wrong.
It turns out that we are feeding a growing family of rats who have taken up residence between our fence and our neighbors. My valiant husband is on a mission to protect our home and chickens from them. Nasty creatures…too bad they’re so cute.
