Somewhere in our sleepy little subdivision, a thief prowls among us. We discovered it yesterday and we were quite disappointed. It would appear that someone or something has made off with Mark's zucchini!!
So typical, the first one on the plant and the first time in years that Mark's planted anything outside. At at our last house, the summer before we adopted Sam, Mark had a little garden that yielded a nice amount of zucchini. He wanted to do it last year but the yard was such a swampy mess that he didn't bother. This year, we thought we'd try an experiment in "container gardening" because our neighbourhood is full of bunnies. We used the dog's old swimming pool (which they NEVER used) and put it up on a patio table. Foolishly, we thought it would be safe up there. Last night, while he was grilling our dinner, Mark noticed that two of his tiny squash were missing. I am hoping it was a bunny and not some kind of veggie devouring zombie!
I'm sure that there will be more to come but boy howdy, he was really looking forward to chomping on that first one!
