Those Pesky Squirrels!
Monday, July 31, 2017
I love home grown tomatoes. I especially like Cherokee purple tomatoes. I had a nice crop of green ones and managed to get two to ripen before tomatoes started disappearing! I reinforced the netting aroud the bushes thinking that would do it. Nope. The netting just got chewed up the side--and more half-gnawed tomatoes showed up on the ground. I stripped all the tomatoes that had a chance of ripening inside and took them in. I had two nice tomatoes on my salad tonight--but the squirrels finished their work removing any hint of tomatoes from the rest of my plants. Next year--war--I'm makign metal cages for them all. I WILL have my tomatoes! You can see some of the green ones in this picture--and of course my dinner salad!
