Oh for f*** sake...
Do you remember a while ago I wrote about planting currants, and how The Dog promptly ate the young leafbuds off the plants?
Well, let's just put it this way: I am also trying to grow potatoes.
...to not much success. The Dog has figured out how to dig out potatoes and eat them.
To all of that I have another two comments:
1) it's mostly The Man who wanted the potatoes to begin with, but being the homely one I'm the one caring for the garden patch, and getting grumpy at The Dog,
2) potatoes are not good for dogs.
