Yesterday while my hubby was out in the garden there in my swiss chard was a RATTLESNAKE.
That is the 1st time for a rattlesnake in the yard. It sure is going to make me alot more cautious when I'm out there
Holy cow!! That might keep me out of the garden!!
Did he smite it or let it go?
I don't think even a rattler would keep me out of the garden. I'd walk lightly and carry a big stick.
I'm glad your husband saw it in good time. I'm sure if he hadn't you'd have told a different story.
Dawn you and hubby keep and eye out for them,glad it didn't strike him.I'm seeing alot of blacksnake here,mom had one in her house she hit it with a baseball bat.lol
Tis the snake season! Hoping all my garden friends are careful. I've begun to carry a small flashlight at night...our driveway is not very well lit and I would hate to come up on a coiled rattler in the dark!!!!
Is one thing I don't have to worry about around here are the bad snakes. Mine are just the bug and rodent eaters.
I don't have any bad snakes here either. I am so glad.
Please be careful, Miss Dawn and everyone.
Thank you all I sure do keep a lot better eye open in my garden than I use to. Up till now there have only been "Nice" snakes in my yard.
Randy he "SMOTE" it to death. And my swiss chard with it
I guess you would call that collateral damage. LOL
The chard wasn't a fatality it is in critical condition but I think it will make
Randy you are really so funny. I love your humor it is kinda like mine. A little warped but really funny
I have a couple of engineer friends and I think most engineers have a bit of an odd sense of humor, but I find them hilarious. I'm glad the chard is going to make it though. I haven't planted any chard for several years. I couldn't get the family to even try it. I think they missed the boat. It's much more forgiving than spinach. I like spinach too, but it doesn't produce for long.
