Being a fashionable scarecrow, Tattie is wearing a pair of my son's old Osh Kosh jeans and a worn out Gap button-down shirt (both originally thrift store finds), Ella's "mum-Henry-chewed-my-Nerf" ball, a pair of old gardening gloves and a baseball hat that I'm sure my husband doesn't need anymore. Of course, Tattie wouldn't be complete without his pie-plate accessories.
The kids and I made Tattie as a response to the questions, "Why are my radishes growing there but not here?" and "What happened to all those lettuce seedlings?"
Yes, crow, we're on to you. That's right. You heard me. Your days in the garden are numbered.
As for the name: in case you're wondering if I spent too much time in the sun today or if I've been playing with those online name generator programs again, "Tattie-bogle" is the Scottish name for scarecrow.
