Day 237, Wednesday, August 25
Grubs and birds and moles...OH MY! Well, Jim trapped a mole...he has been trying to catch this thing for a while. It has these spikey things that you push into the ground and then you step on the top (where the yellow label is) and flatten it out. When the mole goes through the run, it trips the spring and wack! He is toast! So, the grubs are a sign of healthy grass roots and that is what they like to eat. So, then the birds come to eat the grubs...and so do the moles. Our lawn was looking awesome (even the sod that Jim planted where the tree used to be!). Then the grubs invaded...now things are not looking so good. This doesn't make Jim happy...or me either because he makes a face every time we pull out of the drive!
