The Tarp Garden Guard Has to be Vigilant!

The Tarp Garden Guard must be ever-watchful. Things can change in seconds and the Tarp Garden Guard must be ready!

Flipper is our ten year old cat and we've hired him to be the Tarp Garden Guard for another season.

He didn't have a particularly good evaluation last year. He drank all the water before the plants could get it! He was also caught sleeping several times. This year we hope to have better results. I hope he'll cooperate. He's not the most cooperative kitty I've ever met. In fact, he's a "my way or the highway" kitty. Very difficult indeed.

I am happy to report that his work, up to this point, has been satisfactory. No vegetables have turned up missing during his watch. He helps point out where weeds try to come up through the same hole as a good vegetable plant. He usually naps near them!
