My Zucchinis Runneth Over

My zucchinis are growing like crazy and I bet I have about 7 of them currently in my fridge.

Although I may not have to worry about it much longer.

Why, you ask?

Because a pocket gopher has taken up residence in my garden. (insert sniffle here)

He has made himself an intricate labyrinth of tunnels beneath the soil's surface.

And me? Well, I get to look at those annoying, frustrating, gorgeous mounds of dirt like connect-the-dots between all my plants.

Today I spent two hours on my knees poking wire down below the dirt's surface trying to locate the entrances to his underground world. I found 5...count 'em...5 tunnels!

Mr. Pocket Gopher... I have just declared war. Your eviction notice is comin' my friend.

BOO!!! I hope you deterred the little fiend. I bet he thinks he's found paradise though :)
