Dear Karma, once again you win.  

The very day after I had boasted about my wonderful vegetable garden, I awakened the next morning, to mole trails!!

Karma: 1  Liz: 0

Moles. I hate them. 

These pesky rodents took out 2 of my lettuce plants and a pepper plant. Talk about lighting a fire underneath my butt.

I just stood there, overlooking my garden, mouth agape.  I didn't know what to do.  

So what do you do when you need to know something?  You google it. 

BUT of course, you need magic fairy dust to get rid of these bastards because basically you have to hunt them or put a shovel at the end of their trail.  You know, like in the cartoons? Supposedly they will run into them and kill themselves.  

Really?  That's all I can do?


Any way, I was totally bummed and thought my plants were goners. I mean...I don't remember the moles being around last summer and all of a sudden our yard is being ambushed by these buggers.  We have tunnels going everywhere.   

So, I said a little prayer, and waited.  Looks like God was listening because the moles have left my garden alone since then.  Talk about divine intervention!  

This whole fiasco reminds me of this verse:

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
Proverbs 27:1

Annnd...the picture I posted a while ago, that I thought was a baby possum, turned out to be a MOLE!! Kitty had killed it. 

Good Kitty. ;D
