This is a small section after the summer garden, I tend to cramp things together. These are Romaine Lettuce, Cauliflower, Cabbage and Brusselsprouts. This weekend I plan on planting Onions, Garlic and Shallots.

I had a gofer take one of my lettuce plants today. All of the plants are about 12” tall and spread out about 12”. The weather has changed this week it was hovering around low 70’s its down to the low 60’s this week (11-20-07).

bummers re: the lettuce plant. You said that you put chicken wire down. Does that mean that the gofers take the plants from underneath?

Yes they do, sometimes you can see the plant start to shake and get smaller. Pull the plant up and the roots are gone, leave it alone and it will consume all of it pulling it into its hole. My dog helps me catch them. I flood the hole and when it comes up, he catches them.

We used to use the same strategy for moles in the lawn.

we had moles last year in the backyard…. when we emptied our pool we put the hose down into one of the holes. We never saw an inch of water—it all disappeared into their tunnel system.

Yeah, what’s up with them? I grew up in Ohio where we only had the fat fox squirrels, and that was it! Now we’ve got these little buggers who are not intimidated by the dogs!

Dogs nor humans!!! I was sitting in my glider on my front porch this summer (minding my own business – hee) and I watched this black squirrel cross the street, walk up our driveway, then up the porch steps … which at this point I wasn’t sure who was running first!!! Then he got ONTO the front porch, were we stared each other down and he finally left … B-O-L-D !!!!!!!!
