    Garden

    So I'm having a record year for winter squash and lots of summer squash too . Ripening dozens of Cherry and other tomatoes every day this week. Overall a great year.
    How are you other gardeners doing?

    I'm doing a variety of peppers, three different kinds of tomatoes, onions, garlic and calliflower. Everything is doing great except for the garlic.

    The $#@!ing squirrels keep stealing my tomatoes, taking two bites and dropping them though. One stole a jalapeño. Pretty sure he didn't enjoy that.

    I just have a small balcony garden. Still waiting to see how they will turn out- probably another month to find out.

    Try putting chicken wire over your tomato plants to keep the squirrels out.

    I have no trouble with my peppers. I'm growing Bells, Mexibells, jalapenos, habaneros and serranos. I went wild on the peppers this year. Anyway, my tenant lost a tomato and I lost a tomato but that's all so far. Last year, a deer picked my peach tree clean in a single night.

    I'll eat a gray squirrel but not Chippys and Red squirrels . I'm a civilized hillbilly but the neighbor hood stray cats love em. LOL They were messing with my garden. I need a new BB gun though, it took two shots to the head to finish a wounded one off. NOT a powerful weapon after 20 years or so.

    I had to shoot a wounded baby squirrel after a hurricane- I was using a bird shot round in a .45 Sig Saur. The first shot made it sequel, I felt bad and stomped its head in with my boot. I should have done that in the first place. It probably had a broken back.
