Fun in the Garden

Posted by laura on Apr 18 2010 | Fun

We have a great garden, thanks to our friend Finn. We also have very industrious gophers, thanks to our ‘friend’ nature. We love her and all, but she really likes to test the relationship.

Anyway, we’ve tried pretty much every anti-gopher method out there – cayenne pepper, smoke, water, hair (I know, but desperate times…) and most recently, these sound emitters you stick into the ground. Supposedly, gophers, like teenagers, are supremely irritated by certain pitches that the rest of us can’t hear. Well as it turns out, our gophers laughed at our sound sticks and cozied up right next to them, so a weekend ago, Tom pulled them all out and decided to return them to the Home Depot. With all his gopher-related muttering, I was a little nervous that he’d trade those sound emitters in for a gun.

He didn’t. He did, however, come home with this:

Denial is a very powerful drug. He was a very happy gardener for the rest of the afternoon.

I just have one thing to say, though, Tom -

The 1950’s called and said they want their glasses back.

  3. They’re special gopher googles. They have a special capability that instantly makes me angry whenever I see a gopher.
