The good, the bad, and the ugly in the garden this week

The bad: darn these baby maple seeds! The helicopters landed, I picked up as many as I could, and now I'm pulling the sprouts of those I missed. If I ever let natural succession take its course, I'll have a lot of silver maples.

The ugly: Poor Chuck! The bunnies ate his new shrub. The rain and the construction kept him from putting up the fence, and the neighborhood fuzz-balls thought they'd enjoy a salad.

The good? My tomatoes are supported! I couldn't decide which type of support to buy, so I bought all three. This will be the experimental year. I'll see what works best and invest in that kind of support next summer.

Seems that good support is important in both breasts AND tomatoes! I'll stay tuned to see which one works best!
Bummer about Chuck's shrub. This RAIN! OH MY! I planted several new shrubs and I'm nervous about them.

You have got a nice garden out there. I think a connection with plants means a connection with the nature itself.
