So, OK...these guys are cute. But, we have an ongoing battle with them.
Whatever road block we throw up for them on the feeders....
They find a way to get around.
On top of the trees being stressed and losing leaves, the squirrels 'trim' off small branches.
We spend a lot of time cleaning all this up.
But this is too much.
This is six feet up, on the fence around the veggie garden.
They drag the tomatoes off the vine, and chomp a big hole.
I think a bird did this. It was still hanging on the vine.
Yep, that doe is expecting to have a bite, too.
Both sides of this have holes pecked.
I know...we could put netting over it all. But, that's just too much trouble for me.
I'd rather whine.
So, this is our solution.
As soon as there is enough color, we let them finish on the window ledge.
I know they'd be better if they ripened on the vine.
But, we at least get to have some.
The heat is causing less and less to set. We'll be buying them again soon.
But, for now, we'll enjoy these.
And, we'll keep fighting the battle.
Uh, yes....those are dancing flowers. Why do you ask?
Have a Great Weekend...
