# [Garden Corner 9]
There are days when I question everything I am doing. Today was one of those days.
We are on our Urban 1/3 acre homestead for about 9 years now. During that time, I planted lots of fruit trees, got introduced to Permaculture, installed irrigation, then learned about dry farming, then went back to knowing that I need irrigation for what I want to eat.
I got chickens that made more chickens. So, all my kids also have chickens now. And I have way too many eggs.
And then, there are the gophers. Last year, my little Minpin got run over by a car. This year, I can really feel how much she took care of the rodents in our garden.
Today, I went from one frustration to another. I spend a lot of woman hours in that yard and to see one plant after another getting eaten (only 3 Artichoke plants left out of 12 I planted), I ask myself why I am doing this?
I set more traps today. One right under my apple tree where the gopher has been feasting. I hope he didn’t get too many roots and hope that he will run right into my trap.
Yup, and the onion, the beet (not the first from either one) and the list goes on.
It didn’t help that I tried to weed whack and this happened…
Do you have days like that where you wonder what in the world are you doing?
What is the Garden Corner?
Every Friday, I am asking you to share your garden with me. It could be pictures you are taking with what is happening now, or some from last season if you are headed towards winter.
If you are on Steem, I am giving away at least 2 Steembasicincome (SBI). If you are not on Steem - what are you waiting for?
