I went out to look at my garden. Something that gives me pleasure during the day. And a bunch of my radishes were smashed flat. As I'm looking at them this guy comes by and says I sat there is there a problem. (I'm thinking something along the lines of 'Yes, your mom didn't have an abortion.')

But I said, "Yes, you sat on my radishes." I had to repeat it three times before he understood what I said.

I know these people were raised in the city but come on. If the land is cultivated don't walk, sit, stand, dig holes in it or let your dog pooh in it. How hard could it be?

This guy had to be stupid. There is poison oak all around that area. It's hard to kill and since it doesn't bother me I've pretty much left it alone.

Oh! That just burns my hiney! People have no respect anymore when it comes to someone elses property.

I live in a mobile home park and because of a parking shortage, guests have to park in a different area and then walk to whoever they are going to see. They walk right through my yard. It happens mostly at night. They have walked on my plants, tripped over my border fence and bent it up. GRRR!

I have complained to the manager but that does no good because I can't identify who they are visiting when they go through my yard. Since it happens mostly at night, I have done little things to hinder them. It is really wet here in the late fall, winter and early spring. The dirt is mushy, slippery and slimey. I killed all the grass where they walk and they sink, slip and fall down. One night I heard someone fall and cuss. I went outside in the morning and his money had fallen out of his pocket. That was a nice find. lol Its dry right now so I leave my hose snaked across my yard.

I wish people had more respect.

Ugh! I hate stupid, unobservant people! I should plant some poison oak!!!!!

My neighbor's boyfriend was weed-eating her fence and he went down my fence too. Well, I just happened to have a baby witeria planted there for only about a month. It was so healthy and only about a foot tall. I thought it was obvious to any idiot that it was not a weed! The weed-eater pulled it out of the ground a couple inches, and shredded and twisted the top where it was wacked at! But thankfully and very shockingly it is expected to make a full recovery. (I put a tomato cage around it!) thumbup

I've thought about getting one of those little wire fences that you get at the dollar store. And I may just do that. Something to stick up there backside when they sit on my garden.

I'm so sorry it has to be that way.

OMG, OMG!!! I can't believe someone that stupid. I hope your radishes straighten back out. I know how you feel because my FATHEAD dog keeps laying in some of my flowerbeds and smushing some of my stuff. Makes me furious. Oh well, I just go get some bfr's (big friggin rocks) and place around in my bed and it doesn't look half bad. Kinda adds character. Ha Ha. He just better hope I don't drop one of those BFR's on his BIG FAT HEAD!!

They can be interesting upon occassion. Dogs that is not pesky people. There was a post a good long while ago about a cat that did that. But I don't remember the details. I love your idea of adding rocks to the flower bed to make it less attractive to the dog.
