Perils of Veggie Woman
What do these 3 things have in common?
One reason I was reluctant to plant a garden was because of snakes. I could just imagine all the snakes hiding under the plants, waiting to bite me.
I always wear my orange cap in the garden, mainly to keep my hair out of my eyes & away from my face so I will have a clearer path of vision so I can see the snakes before they get me. I always try to look before I reach in to pick the squash.
Tuesday afternoon was cloudy & I reached in to pull a squash & I hear a noise. I immediately jerked my hand back, said a few choice words, stood there shaking like a leaf, looking for a snake. Not finding one, I moved on to the next plant, still shaking, and hear that noise again. This time I realized it was the bill of my cap rubbing against the squash leaves! I'm still looking for snakes, but I am now wearing a bandanna!
