There were no foot, paw, or hoof prints. The ground is dry and hard, so even I don't make a dent in it. I looked around the area and walked around in my field to look for any dropped rhizomes...I didn't find any, but I'll look some more tomorrow.
Deb, they were all in the same iris bed that was planted in late May, early June. They're planted about 18" +/- apart.
Kent, I have to ask...how do you know that?
Bonnie, Dave and I need a garden gnome trap. Odd that your name tag went missing too Bonnie.
No Tom, I don't think it was a jackalope.
The wine is for enjoying after the hard work.
There is an infestation of ground squirrels
on land next to me. They stripped my fruit trees nearest the barn in a day. The fruit wasn't even ripe yet... I'll hop the barbed wire tomorrow and see what I can find near their burrows.
