If you look close...you will see a stick with a pie tin tied to it. It seems that with all the wind we get around here...it is effective as a rodent deterrent. I had a plastic bottle tied to the fence also, but Trouble Dog absconded with it. It made a different noise when it hit the fence and was easier to move.
Things are coming along nicely. My yellow beans are doing fine without a net. So far.
When I was a little girl, my Grandma Scherrinsky would make some in her hand turned ice cream maker. I remember hanging on the sink for a chance to lick the beater. She made it so fun to be a kid. So did my Aunt Vicki. She liked to watch old movies, so when we stayed all night, she would make lots of popcorn and we would drink sodas and pass out on the floor in front of the TV.
Thanks Aunt Vicki...you were so kind to us.
