My sister, gardening neocon

August 17, 2008

Recently retired from the Sacramento Bee, my sister apparently has nothing better to do than go on local public radio and suggest I am naive about pest control in gardens.

Ironically, just days after her piece aired, I remained alone among my family members in both knowing of and heeding the brown apple moth quarantine, which, as a reminder, prohibits moving fruit out of yards in Los Altos, Mountain View, and most parts of Los Altos Hills.

    That sounds very interesting. Your link is broken, though.

    I guess she doesn’t know about netting.

    Are you sure this bit was parodied on a SNL skit? When our male cat died a few years ago, our garden was suddenly attacked by mice, rats and squirrels. Apparently our “princess” cat refused to do her duty.

    Solved the problem by enticing a mountain lion to live in my backyard. Big cats know how to take charge. Added benefit of no more constant barking from the dogs next door. Lets see the ALF stop this experiment.
