It has begun.
Logan and Kaia planted sunflowers about two weeks ago for the Great Sunflower Project. Two little shoots popped out of the ground last week.
They’re gone now, a telltale mound running directly beneath where they used to be.
This, of course, means war. So I went to Farm Supply to pick up something that will either a) repel the gophers or b) kill them. I’m going with option a) first, but if that doesn’t work I will move to option b) with extreme prejudice. The first attempt is blood meal.
Updates to follow. Keep your fingers crossed that the gophers get the hint and I don’t have to resort to more drastic measures.
