    what about rabbits? or, dumb cops thinking that sunflowers are drug plants? or, your nosy homeowners’ association thinking that anything on one’s lawn is an infraction, especially gardens.

    Each summer a few bunnies live in the bean and corn patches of our community garden. The surrounding high desert is a harsh environment, so good for them, there is plenty to go around.

    Homeowner’s associations, the nazis of suburbia.

    Methinks she just wants to be one with Nature uninterrupted by children for the summer.

    Aw, c’mon, Mrs. O. You’ve gone as far as getting your arm broken for the kid. Make up something. Let her work in that garden with you.

    I’m thinking that they’ll end up doing something together to combat her boredom. Maybe play board games together.

    I don’t think Mrs. O is generically bored, but that she’s sighing for some gardening work. Our garden is pretty much on its own right now, too, with a good layer of weed-suppressing mulch, a sprinkler system that keeps things watered, and a brief hiatus between flushes of flowers needing deadheading. There are plenty of good books to read, and other hobbies, but Mrs. O’s favorite hobby just isn’t available right now.

    Play a game with her while sipping lemonade and eating pastries. That should suffice.

    Don’t you wonder why you have to strive mightily to keep your garden while the weeds need no help?

    I feel certain Mr. Mallett will come up with something more unusual than playing a board game. We’ll see.

    She should live in Southern California. There is NEVER a fallow season. Mowing all year ‘round. Which is why I’m sorely tempted to put in concrete….

    There is always something to read in various forms.
