My garden has been murdered!
The so-called landscaping guys came yesterday just as I was leaving for work. I grabbed them and ran around the yard showing them what not to touch (don’t go near the roses or anything around the roses, this is an herb and flower garden –see the flowers– don’t touch this area, this is the vegetable garden — see the lettuce and celery, onions etc). It was too dark to see what had transpired when I got home at 10 last night. This morning, I went down to find devastation.
List of the dead:
The mint. All of it, in all three patches around the rose bushes, buzzed down and raked out by the roots.
Two lavender plants
All of the garlic
All of the onions, both the green onions and the yellow bulb onions my Ema sent
Three parsley plants
The expensive thyme plant
4 new baby hot pepper plants
The rocket patch
The expensive oregano plant
All of the basil
The three new flowers I bought and wrote about last week I’d put around the roses.
In fact, EVERYTHING around the roses and most of the things in the front herb garden — I’m hoping I can save a few nearly dead but with roots left in the ground things in the herb garden.
I’m just speechless from all the nails in my mouth I want to spit.
