Garden Sprawl Friday

See these young rutabagas?

See how the tops flourish?

See this beautiful artistic rendering of a white root maggot?

See this bucket with water, vegetable oil, vinegar, dish soap and cayenne in it?

See how every one of the rutubagas goes into the bucket?

Well, you don't need to see that.

If you can't get your harvest you got to at least have fun killing the little sons of bitches.

Ai, I shouldn't complain. It's been a real good summer, so one crop getting busted ain't all bad. I sometimes think there needs to almost be a victim crop.

I re-seeded more rutabagas, in a different bed.
