Last year the squirrels and chipmunks ran rampage all over New Hampshire, as you’ll recall. They ate everything in our garden and berry bushes before we could stop them – it was the first time in 20 years we picked no raspberries.
This year? We’re entering the “Dammit, eat more lettuce/beats/zucchini/raspberries/blueberries or they’ll go bad!” phase of summer gardening.
Thank you, hawks, weasels, bobcats, foxes, coyotes, etc. etc. Nature is red in tooth and claw, as they say, but right now I’m in favor it.
