The Situation

IMG_8179

Little critters moved into the greenhouse this winter.

Despite several attempts at location and eviction notices,

I couldn’t get more then a glimpse of the squatters.

Yes, I ran from the greenhouse with a few small screams, more then once!

Several times I brought in reinforcements.

My cats just lounged and cleaned their paws.

Last Saturday, the sun warmed to near 50 degrees and I announced it was ‘the day’,

I was going to find that mouse!

I bravely–stood on the little stool and poked at everything with a garden hoe.

Nothing moved, nothing scurried, no mouse.

Until I opened my toolbox!

How dare they–yes, they–take up residence in my toolbox!

Waiting for the next warm day to decontaminate EVERYTHING.

Gardener’s Toolbox

As the greenhouse clean up continues…

My trusty toolbox also needed to be cleaned and organized.

It may have been a fishing tackle box in a former life–

full of compartments that all become easy to see when it is open.

Please do not think for a moment that this organization translates to the rest of my things!
