Calling It

I sounded the retreat for the garden at 6:45am this morning, Wed September 7.  The battle is a defeat, but the war will continue next summer.

There are a few stragglers who have yet to be called in from the field; sunflowers and a bushel gourd vine are valiantly protecting the retreat.

Other than that, all troops have been recalled or, sadly, left to fend for themselves in enemy territory, and the land they once occupied has been ceded to the chickens.  They quickly tried to establish a sovereignty, but got distracted when a moth flew by and they chased it en masse off the deck.  They then forgot that they'd meant to start governing anything and fought over an apple core I'd tossed behind me while surveying the troops.

Ok, the part about the chickens cracked me up!

It sounds like you guys found a great fit with the trainer. Glad to hear you're making strides. Um... progress you're happy with, as it were. LOL
