Tomatoes...half off...

"You can't be friends with a squirrel, a squirrel is just a rat with a cuter outfit!"
                                                                                       - Carrie Bradshaw

In my opinion, the same can be said of chipmunks.  I have watched them...happily frolicking about my back patio...jumping into their holes that surround the new strawberry bed, and in general being evil little vermin.   The first time I caught one in a trap, my husband was upset with his opinion they are cute.  But I have evidence...half eaten cherry tomatoes everywhere but in my salad.  They choose the ones that are 1-2 days from being ripe...I would pick them, but also wish to have them ripen on the vine and oh so sweet.  Don't worry...

"I'll get you my pretty..."

  1. Is there some place close that you can tie aluminum pie pans to? The movement and noise keeps the squirrels away here. I have had trouble with my figs and my pears having unwanted visitors...seems they think I need to feed the whole forest!xx

  2. HA! Love your quotes!

    Good luck! No mercy!!!

  3. Cheeky buggers. Not having chipmunks here, I think they look kind of cute, but anything that eats your garden goodies uninvited is definitely not so cute.


Thanks for visiting with us girls...put your feet up and stay for a while.
