Meese Attack & St. Louis

Scott (I'd like to say "and I" but that's sorta a stretch) finished up the fence he's been installing at my house. The one thing left to do is build the gate. So just as he finished up, I mentioned to my neighbor that it was amazing I hadn't gotten any moose in my garden this year despite the yard not being totally fenced in. And guess who came to visit that same night? Yep, a meese! He/she stepped on my onions and lettuce, but then went ahead and ate a BUNCH of peas, snowpeas, and lettuce. At least I'd already eaten my strawberries! And I took a big harvest out the day before the attack, so all in all, I 'spose I don't mind helping feed the locals. Just once I'd like to catch one in the act though - that would make some for some great photos!

Loren and Mike are closing on their house tomorrow. Watch out St. Louis!
