If You Can't Get a Tomato...

Plant a rose bush. Sure I had my two prize tomatoes eaten by a bastard squirrel or other such animal. Sure my cucumbers never even sprouted. Sure my peppers simply laughed at me. Well, plant a rose bush and you'll still get some joy. They look great and don't get eaten by animals!

PoP, have you seen the front yards of the houses along Princeton, btwn Park Pl. and Warder? There are ~7 in a row that are amazing. You should get photos of those...

I have plenty of tomatoes and cucumbers form garden.
Looks like the squirrels in my area (around Grant circle) are a bit of civilized, and not eating my vegetables.

It wasn't a Squirrel that at my tomatos.....it was a Cardinal! Now I know why the birds are so red.

anonymous--no fair to brag about the garden if you don't want to share with your Petworthian friends :-)
