There's never a dull moment when you live in the wilds of New England. After resigning ourselves to the fact that the groundhog is going to eat our squash, it looks like a deer is eating our blueberries, the same ones we have worked so hard to rescue from the brink of extinction. It seems as if something is also nipping away at our tomatoes, as well. Suddenly we're not loving the woodland creatures as much as we used to.
I guess it just comes with the territory, and we live in their territory, so we have to deal with it, but it's a bummer. It's naive to think that wild animals aren't going to chomp at your vegetables, but you wonder why, with a forest of greens surrounding them, there wouldn't be enough to eat without poaching our stuff. Then again, it's hard to resist the tender delicious allure of fresh garden vegetables.
Hopefully we planted enough of everything to make everyone happy. We'll see.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Maria A for the pic.
