Garden Enemy #1

At this time of the year, my daily ritual involves walking through my vegetable garden several times throughout the day to check on my plants, harvest, weed a bit and snack on the raspberries.

Yesterday in the late afternoon I found a big squash plant uprooted  and four feet from where I planted it,  along with a bunch of other plants all dug up, knocked over slowly dying from the heat.  Immediately I growled, started to see red and looked around for the offender – was it the chickens?  But within seconds I heard what sounded like a hiccup… then a little sneeze.

This fat little bastard was sun bathing on the fence and just looked at me with a taunting “yeah – whatchya gonna do bitch?”

Oh.. it is ON squirrel!
