The Carnage Continues

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!

    I read this post backward. It made the progression from dismay to acceptance even more evident. It is a challenge to work hard to create a harvest only to have it stolen from right under your nose. Your open mind toward the masked critters who only took what in their minds is theirs, highlights the miracle of the broader picture. Very enjoyable, appeasing article.
