No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Plenty of strawberries in the berry patch... unfortunately we're not the ones enjoying them. Word spread fast through the squirrel community that peanuts were being handed out in this yard. Unfortunately the little varmints discovered the dessert buffet as well.

I'm now picking berries before they are fully vine-ripened as a defensive measure. Thankfully the banditos are not into spinach and I have a sink full for supper. 

The lesson every gardener has surely learned - invite Sciuridae mammalia into your garden and they will uproot your seedlings, eat your harvest and play on your guilt with their sad little doe-eyes.
