Send help

This is what my garden was up to while I was away. (This, and a lot of weeds that I had to pull!) The s.o. says it rained just about every day. Everything went absolutely apeshit.

In my absence the s.o. drove the deer away by hanging little bars of deodorant soap all over the garden. Apparently deer are hippies and can't stand the smell of the stuff. Without the deer, there's no way the insects and slugs can keep up with the abundance. They have essentially been promoted beyond their level of competence.

If, in about a week, you hear a quiet keening noise, it will be me, done in once and for all by about 100 tomatoes ripening simultaneously.
