The Scarecrow Has Landed

The Scarecrow arrived from Yardiac (click on link on original heirloom tomato post so I can make a dime today), never mind "not a moment too soon" but unfortunately a few days too late for half of Rex's new heirloom tomato plants. The Scarecrow is a fabulous-sounding device that is designed to use a motion detector and my garden hose to hose down animals as they approach Rex's precious garden. We don't even know who it is who is eating the new plants and taking bite-sized chunks out of our ripe tomatoes. I will send Rex out to the garden to set it up immediately and will report back on the results.
