They're chewing on your HOUSE? Do they come up on the porch to greet you in the morning? Is there anything donkeys and mules don't like the taste of?
There has to be something they don't like, perfume maybe? My horse makes all kinds of funny faces when she smells something like that, course she eats dog biscuits too, so maybe she's not a very good example.
i have owned all three. They just want to eat. I don't think they care what they eat unless it's something expensive like hay. Went and got two bales this afternoon and it wears us out getting into pen. Have to tye Charley up or he is out that gate. I walked them down to the hay. I never saw nothing like it but darn it, I love them and it's a good thing DH loves me or they would be GONE....Not the house I live in, in the other house we own but no one is in there. Too shabby to live in. Now it's worse. They are a mess.
Get her one Chelle. A sweet one. i bet she's beautiful.
Chelle, Arejay's got some raptors here. They are beautiful. Come on over and look. You too, Grandma.

We gardeners sometimes get so intent on getting it right that we forget much of the joy is in the journey and the pleasures of sharing with other gardeners new and old. That's what I love about Plant Haven. Thanks for starting this thread!
Loved the article Susan. Guess I'll have to do my research cause I want to see that garden in the back of his Ford.
The comments were useful to me. I plunged at lot of my tropicals last year and don't plan to put them back in the same area. I'm left with holes. I kept wondering about the time it would take to refill those or turn the whole thing over or put a lasagna bed. One of the comments was "if the plant dies you have a ready made hole for the next one" or something simple and obvious like that.
I've just discovered I'm way ahead of the gardening season and not behind!
Thank you for sharing that article. I enjoyed it and it certainly fits here. I read the post from bloomingwriter too. Makes perfect sense to me. It is amazing how we can sometimes get so caught up in the gardening process that the pure enjoyment of it takes a back seat.
I fought my gardens for probably 20 years trying to make them like the shots in the glossy magazines. No more. Now I choose plants that like my conditions and simply enjoy them!
I've got empty holes in my beds too. Those are the ones we think of when we pass by the nursery.....Uh, oh!

I never rip out the gifts the birds drop and I'm positive I get at least five different new plants that I know I didn't plant. For my favorite 4 letter 'F' word~FREE
All my nurseries open April 1st but I'm going to do my best to hold off until the end of the month. Now that I'm old I look for instant gratification and just can't seem to wait for seeds.
I garden on a small suburbian plot. I need to start putting markers by my empty holes so I don't break my neck when I'm out in the garden. For some reason I thought perennials were going to last forever. Wasn't until 2006 that I learned the average life span of a perennial is 3 years. So last year I thought ...this is just getting too darn expensive so I planted some lovely flowering and evergreen shrubs in one gallon pots. I see the bunnies have thoroughly enjoyed the tender foliage and there's nothing above ground except plant tags.
What the bunnies don't eat, the deer will. My Crocus has their tops trimmed.. I love being older, you can get by with so much in the name of senility. Have to make tags to remember the names of some of the plants. Sharpie has an Industrial pen, hope it is Sunproof. Or I'll have another plant I don't know what it is......
