The Botanist's Assistant Part 3
So, a couple of weeks ago I told you about our German Shepherd, Schultz, and his attempts at gardening. For those who didn't read the story, my son had been trying to grow ferns. They were in pots on our back deck. After Schultz's assistance, only 4 of the 15 ferns survived.
Well, our cat, Bootsy decided to help, too. The other day, he jumped up onto the rail and then dive-bombed the pots. He killed two more. Now there are 2. One is the blue fern. (Bootsy is now in the cat house.)
"We need to find a new place for these. Surrounding them with objects didn't stop the cat," I said. "Why don't you bring them inside?"
Bubba didn't want to do that. He insisted that they needed more light. The remaining two ferns are now positioned along the back boundary of our yard. I predict the bugs will finish them off.
Stay tuned to find out.
Before I go, I want you to know that I am a guest on the DMS blog. Visit here to learn more about my upcoming book, Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China and win one of three autographed copies.
