After getting three quick, large cucumbers, we figured our garden was about to head into overdrive. We imagined having home grown cucumber salad every night with dinner. "Oh my," we'd say, "you simply must take some of these tomatoes and cucumbers off our hands!" As our neighbors marveled at the bounty.
Alas, mice have again discovered the garden and have managed to destroy every cucumber after the first three!
The mouse traps are working, slowly. We've managed to eliminate several mice over the last few nights, but that's not enough. They're still out there. Lurking.
I'll say this, though. If those rodents get a taste for pomegranates, there will be war.
