But Can It Survive Dogfoot?

I know. I realize the weekend has come and gone. But yesterday afternoon a strange little rain/wind/hail/thunderstorm blew through the farm and knocked out our power. It came back on a few hours ago, but just blinked out again. Thank goodness for my battery backup!


  1. Dwarf hamsters? Dwarf hamsters! Could they survive dogfoot? Luckily your dogfoot is not as freakish as this dogfoot!

  2. This comment has nothing to do with dogfoot. Did you happen to see on the news, the two sheep in New Zealand who had eluded being sheared for about six years?
    It is a wonder they could still stand upright with all that wool.

  3. I thought of you when I heard about the storm - did you bring Donkey Dan into the house for the nite - i would have. I love grape hyacinths - ours our u too. i used to have the giant ones. It looks like you have rally nice old split rail fence?

  4. What happy little hyacinths, and I love the doggie paws looming in the background. What a lovely sign of spring!

  5. Dogfoot seems to be a trend around the country right now. Here on the Oregon Coast, I came very close to serving Golden Retriever Soup out of my modest kitchen this weekend when I found my newly planted bleeding hearts laying root side up ): Hannah assured me that she was very sorry and will try to refrain in the future...

  6. What you folks need is some nice chickenz. A few working chicken claws can keep your soil nice and loamy, without digging up the vegetation.

    When you have had it with all that fur and bone burying action , ask yourself if those city ordinances really mean business. A chicken in every garage, isn't that what they used to say?

    What's that Whitey? They said what????? No, no, couldn't be.

    Enough with the cats and dogs. They bark and mewl and they don't lay any eggs. Think about it, and take a chance with a chicken.

  7. The Grape Hyacinths display a lovely colour.Trespass can be a problem!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
