It was one of those weekends where you could have fried an egg on the sidewalk!
The Moose mowed down the garden (forgot to get photos), but it was basically a jungle. That is NOT an overstatement or exaggeration. Many of the weeds were taller than my 5’5” height! He suffered as a result, got dizzy and started losing feeling in his jaw. Heat stroke was looming. Some bottles of water and a head dunk under cold water really helped!
We had some other projects that the guys all worked on, and needless to say their t-shirts all hung low, and it was a good thing it was outdoors, or we girls would have fainted from their smell!
Other important news: We received a phone call late Sunday from one of the guys who is watching our property. They found a 2-1/2 foot gator in our Tilapia pond! How on earth it got in there is a conundrum. The pond is inside a fenced in area, with chicken wire along the bottom 2’. The pond is covered by plastic fencing as well, to keep out the previous band of renegade Egrets! We’ll be doing a walk around to see if an area or two has been breached. I’d rather not feed the local wildlife Tilapia from our pond. I figure, the area is pretty much a swamp or scrub brush, very native environment. They ate from the surrounding area before we came on the scene, they can continue to eat somewhere else!
