Amending vegetable beds

Getting ready for fall vegetables, I dug some (commercial) mushroom compost into some of my already well-worked beds (in the Piedmont).  They were like dust, as I turned over the soil, incorporating the compost.  Yikes.

And leaving the office this afternoon (at the botanical garden where I work), I was startled by a couple of woodchucks foraging in the lantana (weird).  They popped out, saw me, fussed, and ducked back into the lantana.  Hmm.

Very strange, and it isn't a good sign for our nearby kitchen garden, as woodchucks need to get their moisture from green plants, and that's in short supply right now.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
