The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Every morning this little gift is left on my thyme bush. Possum poop.

I dispose of it, and the next morning I find the gift refreshed. Why the possum has chosen my thyme as its personal outhouse is a curiosity, but it seems to prefer this same spot.

Unfortunately, my thyme is now unusable. No amount of washing could possibly make it safe to eat. Thankfully I have a second thyme bush in a raised container. I'm glad I double planted because we use a lot of thyme in our cooking.
