Those Darn Cows!

Yesterday morning my son comes in first thing in the morning to inform me that the cows found a way into the garden and ate the last two cabbages.  Well, I'm not a morning person, and news such as this, on top of that....let's just say all I could do was nod and say okay.  I'm not too worried about the cabbages, really.  It's the fact that the cows got in!  Like other ruminants, they eat anything!

They are not dainty creatures.  They do not exude decorum.  They're more like bulldozers.  These midnight marauders trampled right over my chicken wire trampling the plants while chomping into anything that their noses drifted over, including my garlic!  Now, not much bothers garlic but that didn't seem to phase the beasts.  Not when you regularly see cows out in the chaparral with cactus stickers covering their entire faces!

Of course, the flowers were almost finished, but it would have been nice to enjoy the last few cosmos that WERE blooming!  To add insult to injury they left their deposits everywhere, as you can see at the bottom of the picture.

And more here... They didn't even bother the tomatoes!  What gives?

I'm not too keen about their manure because it's full of weed seeds.

It could have been worse!  They could have spread their destruction throughout a thriving garden!



  1. Oh what a bother. Those bad cows. Would the garlic shed poor milk taste? Seems like it would.

    Yes, on the bright side it could have been late spring or early summer....that would be horrible.
