Admittedly I didn't vote for Pres. Obama. However I am a person that likes to support my president. I don't always have to agree but I think it's necessary to pull together. So when the president came up with the idea of back yard gardens I jumped on the band wagon. I decided on tomatoes, cucumbers, green squash and watermelon. I ordered the hanging garden from the net and set out for home depot. Potting soil, several kinds of tomato plants, 1 cucumber plant, 1 squash plant, 1 water melon plant and $30 bucks lighter, I headed home. By Friday I received my hanging gardens and Saturday I spent a couple of hours planting my food for next winter. Yes sir Pres. Obama, I am going to do my part. I over watered the plants in the hanging garden and they all died. The ones I planted in the ground seemed to doing fine. Back to home depot to get more plants and leave more money. That was OK because I knew I was going to have fresh food all summer. I replanted the hanging garden. This time I choked them to death. I didn't give them enough water. Not a big problem, the land based plant were doing fine. I threw out the hanging gardens and concentrated on ground game. My wondrful garden was growing just fine so I let it tend it's self for a few weeks. When I checked my squash plant I had one giant green squash. I harvested that one and never saw another squash again. Well I still had the maters the cukes (notice how I'm beginning to speak the farm lingo) and the melon plant was doing just fine. I would go out every day and check the "garden" The cukes and the maters were growing and beginning to ripen. Ah Saturday I'll harvest I thought. When the glorious day of harvest arrived all the ripe maters and cukes were half eaten. Some damn varmint got my harvest before me. I watched and set traps to no avail. Every time the damn maters and cukes were just about ripe, that damn varmint would get to them first. Then one morning I saw racoon tracks on my drive way.
A sneaky raccoon was stealing my garden. I pulled out all the plants but the melon. I googled raccoons and it said they are not partial to melons, (I wouldn't bet on it).
I think Pres. Obama knew about the raccoons and had a secret plot to feed the raccoons of America.
Yes pres. Obama you went to far this time but I got even. I caught that raccoon and dopped him off on the white house front lawn, I hope he eats all your Easter eggs.
