We learned something new this year. Squirrels aint good pumpkin carvers. Efficient maybe, just not artistic.
The wife thought she would do a little Fall yard decorating prior to Halloween and Thanksgiving so she bought a small bale of straw, some fake plants and a couple small scarecrows. And added two obviously delicious pumpkins. She set it up for all to see at the front corner of the house. It didn't take long for our furry neighbors to take notice.
Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater chewed through it. Not sure if it was his wife or not but one climbed inside to eat the seeds. Last I saw they were all doing well.
They didnt mess with the second pumpkin until we hauled the first one off. They chewed the top of that one until the stem fell off.
We will prolly have volunteer pumpkin plants popping up all over the yard next Spring.
They ate the neighbors Mums.
Soon they will be knocking at the door collecting protection money.
I hope all you and yours have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day.
