I would have never guessed…

I am happy to report that I have solved the mystery of the ‘missing watermelon leaves’… Turns out it’s just our friendly neighborhood squirrel!!   While in the kitchen the other day, I noticed a little movement on the back porch out of the corner of my eye… only to look out the window to see this little fuzzy tailed rat snatch a leaf off the watermelon plant then hop up on the rail and sat there eating his green veggies right in front of me!









Well, since this picture, we have decided to toss the last of the melon plant (it was just about gone!) in the brush pile out back and try again next year with a proper garden plat for the watermelons… and I’ll have to work on my BB gun skills this winter… been a long time since I was squirrel hunting!
