Sneaky DOGS!

I have TWO WHOLE ACRES of property out here,
AND...
I have to buy POTS To plant some veggies.
I planted three tomato plants and two pepper plants.
I think the labels were wrong in the plants when I bought them.
They did not disclose that Dogs might eat them!


All THREE of my dogs LOVE GREEN TOMATOES
One day, I looked and I had probably 20 tomatoes on the plant that Sassy is hiding behind.
Then the next day I went to check on  them, and was SHOCKED!
NOT a tomato one!
I don't know who it was that discovered they liked the tomatoes but
I know that ALL Three of them eat them.
They nose the tomato till it falls off.
Then gently pick it up and carry it off.
Then proceed to lay down and enjoy the stolen prize.

 
I have gotten some Peppers off of ONE plant.
The little peppers are mine.
 
Aren't they just to cute?
And so tasty too!
Not hot!
Sweet!
 
Either the dogs have not tasted these or they do not like them.
It is the only one of my plants that has produced anything.
 
I think next year, I am going to Plant HOT PEPPERS around my tomatoes!
I am waiting for them to ask me to FRY THEM UP!
If they tell me they love FRIED GREEN TOMATOES,
I will faint!
I would not put it past Taumee to do something like that.

By the way, I am home sick today.
I have been fighting a cold since Monday.
you know how it starts in your head, and winds up in your chest!
WELL Last night it settled in my chest!

I am blowing on this blog as I type in the hopes to pass this on.
They say if you can pass it on, you will get better!
I hate being sick!

Sorry to hear you are sick. Hope you feel better soon!

I had no idea dogs would eat green tomatoes. Of course, I didn't think a horse would eat a tuna sandwich!

Glad you are sharing the love! I've been sniffling and sneezing for two weeks now!

Sorry about the tomatos. Wish I could share some of mine with you. Right now I have a laundry basket full that I need to get something done with. That is about all I can grow in my garden.

Thanks for stopping by and hookin' up with the crazy people that follow my blog. I'm hooked on you now and can't wait to get to know you through blogdom.

Blessings~
