The longest day and voles


Tomorrow is the longest day of the year. Make an effort to use every minute so they are not wasted.

If you are a pagan then you can light a bonfire. If you are a Christian then it is the Feast of St. John the Baptist. I think I will just have a normal Sunday.

My vole population has increased by seven young pups. They are a riot to watch. They play tag and roll and wrestle on the grass.

They love eating my dandelions so that is a good thing. The bad thing is that they will grow to dig even more holes in my yard. Oh well.

I did read where they eat grubs and that is a good thing for the soil. With all of the voles I have I can't imagine that I have any grubs left.

I did read that you can trap voles using peanut butter for bait. I tried that and all that I got was less peanut butter. I guess they are quicker than the traps.

I also read that you can chew juicy fruit gum and then put that in their holes. The point of that is they can't digest the gum and it kills them. I tried that and all I got were a bunch of voles hanging out around the juke box chewing gum and listening to rock and roll. Hmmmmmm.
