Mom: Sage! WHAT have you done? Those are my parsnips!
Sage: Mom, you said you and Dad were going to Croatia and I wanted to meet you there. You’ve never left me before.
Mom: I know you do and we will miss you a LOT. But that’s just way to far for you to dig and we are leaving in 2 weeks. You and Toby will have fun with your petsitter.
Sage: But, MOM……..
Mom to Dad: I guess we need to Sage-proof the garden.
The first attempt around the tomato bed failed. We used a plastic fence material and it was too flimsy. (Note: Tomatoes were stripped of their leaves so MAYBE they will ripen. Portland had 20 days of sunshine this summer–one of the coolest summers in a very long time.) Then we went to fence wire, which is now around the parsnip bed and tomato bed. One more bed to go!
Sage: Guess what, Mom? These parsley leaves taste pretty good!
