The pumpkin has been compromised!
These pumpkins on the front step had suffered a couple small spots of gnawing as (I'm guessing) squirrels sampled their flavor. Then, last weekend, I saw that a full-fledged attack has been waged and they had broken through and pillaged the pumpkin insides. Isa & I were both pretty impressed.


  1. Yikes! I'm a little scared of the squirrels.

  2. We have ways of dealing with animals like that in the country. just sayin.. Those were some hungry squirrels. or... possum? or raccoon,??

  3. SB - yes, the squirrels are already obese, they are going to be huge this winter.

    homebase, are you shooting squirrels down there now?! "A squirrel in every pot" - isn't that what FDR said?
    ..and thank you for your tip about the "Mousekins Golden House" book. Can't wait to check it out tomorrow!

  4. THis picture and a drawing belongs in the nature journal.
