Well, Bigstrongman used the camera over the weekend and ran down the battery. I told him that I'd charge it (since you need pictures, don't you!) but I didn't... *sigh*... so I'm still posting without pics. Sorry about that!
My garden got a very late start this year. Not because I was busy, or because the weather didn't cooperate, or because I just didn't prioritize it... nope, none of that. The hangup was...
Here in Pennsylvania they call 'em groundhogs. I grew up in the midwest where we call 'em woodchucks. Whatever you call them, they are sooooooooooooooo cute!
Ordinarily I love to watch them play in the yard. They're goofy little buggers, especially when the babies are young. But then they found my garden. Then they became bad, bad woodchucks.
