Letter: Gardening season obviously for the birds


Golly! It's that time of year again when my favorite neighbors are busy luring and seed feeding the birds in Cornville. Soon, 2014 will become like 2013. Gardening will be for the birds. Lost 66 2/3 percent of my crop to the birds alone. All because my city slicker neighbors (renters) will force me to buy inferior food at other markets or pay the high organic produce prices.

It's hot in the garden and should not take nearly all day chasing away the birds. Of course the neighbors understand English, however wish to be contrary and do not understand the language of Peace.

This will probably be my last year of food chain, sorry folks.

Try Sq.Ft. gardening. Remember birds are also bug eaters that could have been 99% to the grasshoppers.
