Celery part deux

Looks a bit wilted
On closer inspection, it's small.
A hole with some celery tops.

I took some pictures yesterday because I found another missing and eaten celery. The celery should be nice and thick but is a bit on the skinny side. They are doing okay, except they are not in the sun too long so the growing time is longer. I have yet to go out there and see what else went underground. I do have to pick some string beans before they turn to seed. I hope I don't see the snake again, that gives me the willies knowing I'm walking in between the rows and hear a rustle in the plants. Okay I'll take a deep breath now and say a prayer and do as the deer and stomp the ground but with a stick not my feet. I'm laughing at myself for this. More later.

Life 'in the country' LOL..a rustle in the leaves and seeing a snake!!!!!
I am closer to Boston's inner city and the only rustle around here is a potential flasher about to spring out of the bushes as one walks along the river!!! LOL LOL
I do have a newspaper clipping of my bro and his wife as newlyweds . After they moved into their Brockton apartment she opened the cabinet under the sink to get the pots ready to cook and was faced with a huge snake. Turns out a neighbor in the same apartment building had lost his pet and it crawled into their kitchen through a hole under the sink for a washer/drier hose. The newspaper came with the camera after hearing the call on the police scanner.
They will never forget that incident...

That must have been a shocker for your brother and sister-in-law. And it was in the news too! Believe me I wouldn't forget it either, snakes are scary.
