A whole day devoted to creating and delivering brochures? Hell yes! Especially when a really nice person from Lincoln Center invites you to bring some by. (Thanks, Lisa!) So yes, I spent pretty much all day crafting the very first Little Dog Orchard Lease A Tree brochure. As soon as I figure out how, I'll post a link to it.
The great thing about this endeavor is that I get to meet a lot of really cool, nice, thoughtful, interesting people. (I swear I am not sucking up to the reader.) There are so many people out there who get excited at the idea of being a part of a healthy, sustainable food economy that it makes my heart sing.
On a not-totally unrelated note, check out the Silk Road Ensemble on Live from Lincoln Center tonight. It's a great show!

Operation Double Bubble is a complete failure. I might try again with more gum directly in the holes. I might try Leslie's approach and throw used kitty litter in the holes. (Anyone with used kitty litter around should drop me a comment.) But the woodchucks best be warned: A new sheriff is coming to town, and he's armed. (Hint: It ain't me.)

Operation Double Bubble went into effect yesterday at 15:00 hours. The goal? Target elimination. The weapon? A 99 cent package of Double Bubble chewing gum. Yesterday afternoon, I unwrapped the pink pods of doom and laced the area in and around the woodchuck holes. As of this morning, the gum I left just outside the holes was untouched, and there were a few targets roaming around and grazing. So I threw everything into the holes.
And now I wait.
(For those of you worrying about my mental health and/or assuming I'm turning into Bill Murray, I have at least three more approaches to woodchuck elimination that I'll attempt before resorting to plastic explosives shaped like rabbbits.)
