Holes all over, really...

I would have blogged yesterday before work, but our Internet wasn't working. Then last night I couldn't get blogger to work. What a pain.

Sunday was another gorgeous day!

I spent most of the day cleaning up the gardens.
Having not been out there in a week, yes the weeds
are overrunning the place, I noticed some little jalapenos
growing and quite a few plants have new flowers!
I sure didn't expect that.

The cows getting some relief from the sun.

I saw this big hole under our very attractive horse trailer and wondered who the digger was.
A few hours later I had my answer.

Keeping cool I guess.

Not sure what that bucket is doing under there, but I've since
thrown it away.

We've also discovered we have gophers or moles trying to dig tunnels under the pool!

Not good!

The Hubby is trying some creative ways to get rid of them, but as soon as he "baits" one hole two more show up. At last count there were about 12 in the backyard with tunnels that really go in and out from under the pool almost all the way around it. When you are in the pool the you can feel with your feet how spongy the sand is under the liner. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this. We will just have to wait and see if the liner gets torn by the ice come spring.

The kids start school tomorrow. Two of three are very excited. You would think Colton would be rearing to go since he'll be a Senior, but he's really not.

Happy Tuesday to ya!

maybe that fluffy little dog is in cahoots with the gophers and assisting with the under-pool digging? I'd keep an eye on him, he looks suspicious. He probably has been using the bucket to haul dirt away from the site to throw you off from the truth.

Your doggy sure is smart! Did he really did that big hole?

My garden is winding down now, but bought some beautiful tomatoes from the amish man last night. His green beans were very tasty too!

The white dog does not look so white! Go get them gofers! They cause sink holes.
