It's War...

Our garden is faring MUCH better this year! Casey's proving to have quite the green thumb. And my thumb that apparently secretes vegetable killing poison has stayed out of it. :) My favorite is the basil and parsley- I've made lots of pesto this spring!

The tomatoes are doing great too-
But we have a pest that also loves our tomatoes. A bird. The same bird everytime. If we accidentally let a tomato get to the perfect ripeness before picking it, the bird is there first.


So Casey spent hours one afternoon constructing this scarecrow.

It didn't work. In fact, the bird inspects it with interest. Right before hopping in the garden and pecking the heck out of a juicy tomato.


So Casey took it up a notch.

He bought a BB gun at Wal-Mart today and has been at "Target Practice" all afternoon. Get ready for the next pictures, you might pee your pants.

This is my favorite vermin-

Wish him luck! I'll let you know when the war is won! :)
