While I was picking my English Peas yesterday I asked this lady if she had a nice Mother's Day with her family, as I know all of you did too! After a few niceties, I thanked her for all of her hard work in keeping the garden free of bad bugs, I also wanted to know if she knew who was pecking my strawberries, as most of her days are spent in the garden?
After a little fluttering, and hem hawing
she said she didn't want to be a tattle tale, so she took me over to one of the plants and showed me this,
and without another word she flew so elegantly away, but not before thanking me for allowing her to over winter in our attic,and for not using pesticides in our garden.
AH! HA! here is the culprit... Don't put on that innocent act with me, fella! I am on to you.
and do you think he would peck the small ones, oh know he likes the big juicy ones...
Oh well, just another day on the farm, truth is there is such an abundance of strawberries this year, so I don't mind sharing, I just don't want him to make a habit of this. ~smile~..
This is what I gathered yesterday from the garden.
Proverbs 22:9~ A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
