We have a really nice lawn because every fall a skunk comes around and digs up all the slugs…. in the spring you can’t see where the lawn was dug up.

“They definitely do it better than I ever did.” Lisa Dawn

“Owned a rescued crow for over 27 years. It would have been a world record for a crow living in captivity, but I had grown up and moved on with my wife, leaving “Chris” the crow with my mother. She ended up with dimentia and eventually succumbed to alzheimers disease and losing all of the mandatory paperwork for him/her or whatever it was. I named it Chris, because I was 7 years old and couldn’t tell whether it was a male or female. They are EXTREMELY intelligent animals. Ours was fluent in cuss words, said I love you, water, food, my name. And screamed gibberish to my other pets.” Bryan Benedict

“My Dad rescued a Jackdaw from a cat and nursed it back to life. After he released it back into the wild it would visit us often and eat out of my Dad’s hand. One year it brought a mate with it. We moved away eventually and I wonder if that Jackdaw missed us.” Fae Hutchi

“My first thought was how could I make one on a smaller scale for my yard.” Bill Hotz

“Geez, Louise people……it is a piece of sculpture that also happens to tell time. It’s not the atomic clock! Why don’t each of you critics design a better sundial!” Vince Panicola

#6 | Figs are technically not fruit

WFOT Recap episode 1 image 10

Figs are technically not fruit– they’re actually inverted flowers. They require a specific kind of pollination that can only come from fig wasps (1.5mm big) –wasps that have to DIE INSIDE the fruit in order for the fruit to mature, since figs cannot be pollinated by wind or normal bees.

Note worthy comments on this post

“Nope – there are self-pollinating figs. I have one.” Dayle Severns

Figs are my favorite fruit. Nothing can change that fact 😁 although figs where I live are not as good as ones in Mediterranean countries. Pelin Tatlidil

I’m questioning eating our figs now. 😕Lisa Martin did you know this?? Laurel Johns
