What does your husband say about the visits?

It's time for your DH to tell his uncle that his unannounced visits can no longer be accepted.

My husband gets upset with all the visits also.

Yes, the doors need to be locked at all times. It's a hassle, yes. BTDT.

It would be a darn shame if the garden died, huh? Especially just their side, lol. But that would be hard to explain away!

My husband once borrowed a tiller against my direct opposition. What happened, you want to know? Within 90 SECONDS of starting it, the motor blew up. It was just it's time, but guess who had to buy them a new one? Never, ever borrow things if it can be avoided. Rent one, instead.

I don't think it would be out of line for you to tell him, "hey, you came over here and just walked in and scared my mother half to death. you can't do that anymore. if our vehicles aren't here, do not stop and walk in."

Then pour just a tiny bit of bleach around their plants.

Just kidding, everybody.

I don't think it sounds trivial at all. In fact, you've held your tongue for far longer than I could/would have! After that last conversation, I would have shown him the door and told him his gardening days were over for good!

I hope your DH stands up to him soon- I just don't see this getting any better for you otherwise!

LOL!!! I love your ideas ladies!!! Bleach.....lol....dead veggies.....hehehehehe!!! Stinkers!!!!

MIL used to do the same thing to me all the time!!! One day she came barging into my home after work, I was in the process of changing out of my work clothes. Let's just say she got more than she was looking for that day!!!!

I would lock the doors & not answer it when he comes knocking. I would also invest in caller id if you dont' already have it!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!

Oh, I thought his repeated visits now were because he was working in the garden. But he does nothing? Well, he shouldn't be surprised if his part died! You're taking care of it then? And he has the nerve to say what he said last Sunday? What an a**!!

(you obviously don't live in Texas, haha. i haven't had a vegetable grow in a few weeks. not one! i'm about ready to throw bleach on mine, lol.)

Haha. I didn't really put a whole lot of time or work into my garden! Just watering! Weeds don't even grow anymore, lol!

I hope you're not taking care of their part of the garden. I wouldn't even water it, with their attitude.
