    But I'm about to go fvcking Mole hunting,

    bruh. Messing p my garden, leaving their big azz holes, stealing my watermelon. I hate them. They're worse than the birds and insects. At least the insects just screw with the leaves and the birds don't steal the whole item. The only ones I don't mind in my garden are the Bees...

    Actually

    Actually I wish I had a garden. I use the office plants as a place to do my "yard work." It is amazing how important this is to me. I try to garden when I''m home visiting my parents.
