It’s the weekend and maybe you have seven minutes to watch this episode of The Goofy Gophers. Good Saturday morning fare. Read more about The Goofy Gophers here and here.

Some of you battle gophers and what stories I’ve heard over the years. I remember when a gopher took out my sister’s Yves Piaget rose overnight when I was visiting. (Thankfully our soil is too sandy for their tunnels).

Elsewhere, other garden thieves diminish the harvest: squirrels, groundhogs, moles and voles. Add to the enemies list or tell your stories in “Comments." 

Next time you encounter the damage of garden rodents, chill and think about Disney’s creation.
