We first discovered the tasty dish called "Toad-in-the-Hole" while reading Danny the Champion of the World, by Roald Dahl, several years ago.  It is basically a Yorkshire pudding, with sausage links in it.

Lately, I've found that it can mean something entirely different.

Almost every morning, I find that something has created a hole in my potted purple peppers (how alliterative!)

Almost every day, I dig it out, and find absolutely nothing in there.

The other night, I caught the culprit in the act!


In other news, L and I created the 4th manifestation of "Lazy Laura" the scarecrow, and posted her in the garden.  She is supposed to be keeping the cicadas off of my blueberries, but I don't think it's working.
