You're All Invited...

You may remember last week I told you about my new vegetable garden.  

It took approximately 1 day before I spotted the first crawfish hole in my beautiful garden.

For those of you that don't live in my area, it's fairly common for crawfish to live in our yards.

I came back out a few days later to see that the darned crawfish have set up a whole danged subdivision in my garden.

But I still wasn't frustrated.

Until I saw that most of the leaves had been eaten off of my beautiful jalapeno plant.

After a quick Google search, I learned that crawfish do like leafy plants.

So, here's what I've been leading up to this whole post...

Who wants to come over to my house for a crawfish boil?!


If you can catch them, I'll gladly cook the little boogers.

lol, this post cracked me up.

I feel for you though that would drive me nuts...

I've never been to a catch your own crawfish boil could be interesting or I could just leave very hungry.

Oh no, that would be frustrating!

We just planted a bunch of new plants in our back yard, and the rabbits have pretty much destroyed them, UGH!! I feel your pain!

yikes!! I didn't know they could live in yards I thought they lived in like water?? haha apaprently I'm not a Texan yet

Crawfish creep me out!!!! I can't even imagine what I would do if I found out they were in my yard! AHHHHH! Then again I'm from NJ and I doubt that will even happen. Thankfully LOL... So is there a solution to getting rid of crawfish besides catching/cooking? LOL our worst offenders are rabbits and deer. We put human hair around the garden to scare away the deer. That's a little creepy in itself too.

P.S. Should allow Name/URL posters to post comments, I don't use any of the accounts for commenting and had to sign up with a program to leave this :-(
