A Site Where Groundhogs Rule

Groundhogs, woodchucks, whatever you call them, can be the bane of farmers and vegetable gardeners. My own garden is a shambles this year because of the immense groundhog described in my last post. I am not the type of gardener who would trap and harm or kill any of the birds or animals that wander onto my property. I’m more or a “grin and bear it” person.

But some people go even farther and welcome these animals. They feed them, give them cute names, and in the case of one woman, create an entire website about them.  There’s also a blog where people from all over the country send in photos and  stories about “their” groundhogs. As you can imagine, Ground Hog Day is a big deal for these folks.

The name of the website is Hog Haven. Check it out if you want a laugh or two, and Happy 4th, everyone!groundhog-banner4

    I have purchased a ticket for the MG garden tour and will definately look for this garden. I like the idea that they have sustanable plants. We are planning to build a shed and this garden should give us lots of ideas.
