Oh my....I wonder if this is the little bandit that ripped through our screen the other night. Usually the raccoons do that when a bag of trash is left out there, which it was. Don't opossums look like big rats? LOL.....Now I understand the saying "playing opossum." That little critter just froze when we found it and wouldn't budge. My ShihTzu's were on the other side of the fence going nuts and it just stood there frozen to that spot! Hope Lisa doesn't see this! I really don't feed them...we don't have a garden, just woods out back.

"don't have a garden".........**GASP**
That's something you must remedy this Spring!!! It's very good for grounding oneself. Plus think of all the good herbies you can grow. And pumpkins!!! LOL

I wish we could have a garden. I've always had a garden until moving here. We have three acres and are not allowed to remove any trees. It is all in shade. The only bit of sun that hits our yard is around the mailbox and I grow roses and flowers there. I want so badly to take out some trees...but durn covenents of the subdivision do not allow clear cutting which is what we would need to do and to get a tree cutter to come out is around two to three thousand to take down the few trees we need out. Then our woods are loaded with deer...they would eat everything and fences are not allowed either...big sigh...I want to sell this house and move to where I can have a garden!!!!! I have a lovely shade garden out back and plan on adding shade plants this year. We have Joe Pye Weed and Deadly Nightshade growing on the edges of our woods. G

Grow some herbs inside~grow some container vegetables (tomatoes) on the porch. Grow grow grow where you can!!! I'm telling you, you need to grow things!!! B

You'd be proud of me. Today, I planted flowers. It's not too late in this part of the country...or too early. They are shade loving. Tomorrow it is to rain. I used to have a beautiful garden and I miss it so. You are right there is such satisfaction in turning the earth and nurturing tiny seeds to life. It is akin to when we grow babies! Life does spring from the earth and tiny seeds!

I would think that if roses are doing well in your yard..that veggies would too actually. It sounds like you have enough sunlight going on to be able to grow things like lettuces and so forth. I'd certainly give it a try. you can grow lettuces in pots too.

by the way..about the possum..we had a pet possum back when I was a kid..neat critter actually..it was orphaned and wound up by our back porch..a wee baby possum..the mom had been hit by a car in front of our house. Anyhow..we raised it for a while, then gave it to an outdoor classroom zoo facility that taught children about Florida wildlife.
It was a neat experience..when they are babies their ears are see through..you can see the veins and all..weird. And yes..they hand off of your finger by their tail..so funny!

omg --not one of THOSE !!! I took out 52 possums and coons from the garden area last year . They eat whole gardens --pulled up berry bushes and rose bushes and ate them down to roots. !

You could try zuchinni and yellow squash. They tolerate half day of shade ok. BUT possums love them :(
