I see that there is another asinine reality TV show: Naked and Afraid. A man and woman, cast away to fend for themselves - must survive on their own - all without the benefit of clothing. *yawn* What next to titillate the masses of bored and moronic? Cannibal cuisine?
Meanwhile, for some REAL 'naked and afraid' stuff, check out my zins. They got too big for the baskets so two days ago I bit the bullet and removed their safety covers.
Oh, my babies!
I kept my fingers crossed. Last year the zins were spared. But this year other plants that had been spared then too, were being chewed up this year. I don't know if the zins are bitter enough to survive.
The morning after their first night out, I was relieved to find no damage.
Alas, the 2nd morning saw that a couple of the plants had had all their growing tips chewed off!
I put out 3 varieties of zins:
Cut'n'come again (big),
Lilliput (almost as tall but with smaller blooms)
and my new fave, Thumbelina. They are supposed to only go 6" but last year, even in the drought, got closer to 14".
Bon chance, mes enfants.
