I came out the other morning to find my zucchini still on the vine, but half gone and sporting bite marks:
Again my money is on those blasted raccoons. They must be pretty confident and relaxed, taking their time and enjoying their meal on the spot. I am so unimpressed, but again, what do I expect? I’m living in a forest…
On a brighter note, the animals seem a lot less enthusiastic about the eggplant (much like the rest of my family). Really, couldn’t anyone have thought of a better name for this plant?!
And though technically this is an edible, I honestly bought this Malabar Climbing Spinach vine just because it was so damn pretty:
I’m getting used to the bears, skunks and raccoons, but this is more the scale of “predator” I can comfortably handle:
Pretty benign in comparison; given all the distress caused by those thug raccoons I just didn’t have the heart to kick this little guy off-especially when you consider how hard he had to work to climb all that way!
