Well, I truly hope you are having a pleasant summer. Around here the tomatoes are turning red on the vine and the ears of native corn are starting to pop up at roadside stands. Unfortunately, this year’s corn- growing in my garden did not go so well. Late cold and lots of wet despoiled the crop. Oh well, that is why we have grocery stores, right? In another piece of farming news, the escaped pig was never recovered and while I make my living trying to help people keep predators away, I kind of hope a coyote got it because the idea of a full-grown feral pig wandering my woods is not a pleasant one. Anyway, the remaining pig( which my youngest daughter has named Stanley) seems to be settling in to life on the PeeMan’s farm. Of course that is easy when he can be blissfully unaware of his impending demise. I however am not unaware and am impatiently waiting for Stanley chops and Stanley bacon. Sorry if this bothers some of you, but a man’s got to eat!
Enough about me! Last post I took a look at a yard pest that is totally foreign to my neck of the woods, and today I will travel down that same road. Prairie dogs sort of require prairies and last time I checked there aren’t too many of those up here in the Great North Woods. But, apparently there are some parts of the country where these gopher like creatures still make their homes. From what I can gather, those “homes” can be destructive to yards and gardens. On the other hand, the labeling of the prairie dog as a pest has led to a damaging level of eradication. So, a solution that does not harm this unique and fascinating creature but encourages them to make their home elsewhere would be ideal. Just so happens . . .We’ve got a pee for that! The coyote is one of the prairie dog’s natural predators so our 100% CoyotePee is the perfect solution!
Well, a nice blend of personal and business makes for a good blog post.
So, until I find more words. . .
