BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN RAPING AND PILLAGING OUR GARDEN!!We planted corn this year for the second year in a row. We planted more than last year because I've finally learned how to cook fresh corn, and because Mr. Big could eat corn on the cob for every meal for the REST OF HIS LIFE. I was excited.
I did the happy dance every time I saw signs of a little ear popping out of the stalk.
I got a chill down my spine every time I saw the hairy tassle thing sprouting out of the ear.
AND THEN THIS HAPPENED.
Now I cry a little every time I go to see how the garden is doing. And just when I thought we'd actually get a COUPLE of ears for ourselves, they were destroyed the next day.
However, this story does have a happy part to it.
I fell in love again with my husband today. He was walking back to the house holding a BB gun.
TAKE THAT YOU BLASTED PIRATES!
