    HallerLake- have you ever seen the japanese china that has a picture of one of their presidents/monarch's in the bottom of the cup= i.e. when you hold it up to light it reveals the picture of the person imprinted in the porcelin? I have a whole kid-size set of that, as well as one tea cup/saucer. I was fascinated with that china when I was a kid. I have no idea the age, but it has a very artistic raised dragon pattern on it, with gold leaf on the rim. (It's still packed or I'd take a picture)

    I would have to buy a camera for it. I was thinking of planting berries... black berries and stuff. But then the corn thing i thought would be kinda funny because they'd be eating it and that stuff tastes so gross.
    the majority of my planting area is out in front. But this year i plan to only plant the good stuff in the back yard. going to get a lot of large pots, or totes to use as pots for tomatoes and peppers.

    How about just trying to make a sign that says "I work very hard to grow this garden for my family. Please do not eat from my garden" , or using "crime scene" tape to mark it off with "private garden, please do NOT help yourself" or something similar. Or, netting? I just bought a 5 x 10 foot next in Seattle from a net 'recycler" for $30.

    Maybe you can borrow a web cam or something? You can also try a fake sign/etc and hope that people believe it..
    Sucks that anyone would steal food from another that has worked hard for it.

    That is hilarious! If I wasn't on my iPad, I could use all kinds of emoticons!

    Hey thanks!

    I never knew what that was called- googling that phrase, plus dragonware plus geisha- here's a set like what I have- except I only have the cups and saucers- no idea what happened to the tea pot: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dragonware-...320?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27cb70a3a8
