Waiting... - Helen's journal and online home
In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
I am feeling fretful because I am stuck in the house unable to leave because I am waiting for the new monitor to be delivered. While I've been waiting, the sky has clouded over, but, according to the text message, it shouldn't be long now.

I think my first job when I am finally free to venture out will be to pick the jostaberries. I noticed that the bush was full of birds this morning! They seem to have discovered my fruit!

Noooooo! I'll have to think about some protective netting for next year.

Also stuck in as there are some review books being delivered this afternoon.

Tea? :o)

Netting may not be enough. We have a mockingbird who dives deep into the netting to drill into the just-ripe tomatoes. So far, the inflatable plastic snake has been a useful deterrent.

I hope those birdies leave you a few berries!
