Squirrels are of the devil
I have a new found hatred for squirrels. I always thought they were cute and harmless...before this year. There are 2-3 squirrels systematically stripping my tomato plants of every last tomato. They don't even run away when I chase them, yelling and clapping like a crazy person. I've sprayed them with water guns. I've sprinkled coffee grounds and cayenne pepper all over the place. And I've now resigned myself to watching them walk away with as many tomatoes as they can carry each day. Daniel wants to kill them, but I just don't have squirrel murder in me. I figure more squirrels will just come to take their place. I give up. All of those beautiful tomatoes grown for nothing.
