I planted an apple tree. The one, single apple fell off due to a worm. I planted blueberry bushes. The chickens ate every last one in their reach, leaving me about five. I planted peaches and plums. The deer not only knocked off the fruit and ate it but also stripped the lower 2/3 worth of leaves, breaking limbs in the process. I planted mayhaws and a mimosa tree in the yard. Rabbits raked them bare in one night.
I think God felt sorry for me. ‘Cause look what I picked last night!
I guess the critters were all so busy destroying my other crops they let this one slip by.
Or it could be the 24.00 worth of Liquid Fence I sprayed around them.
Hey, nobody ever said farming was profitable on a small scale. But is sure does taste good!
