In my many years of gardening I have faced many critters. We will all remember my love/hate relationship with the local deer herd on the Missouri farm. Not to mention the rabbits, ground hogs and moles/voles. Black snakes, coons, bobcats, coyotes, badger and those huge black snakes. Never will I forget the ticks and buffalo gnats. Well I have a new one. SQUIRRELS! Look at that little darlin up there. There are 4 baby ones that are in the tree right off my back deck. My yard is covered with them. They love them hickory nuts and big acorns off them white oaks.
I have a funny feeling that we are going to fight over my garden beds.
It got so bad that the dogs were constantly barking at the squirrels through the sidelights on the back door. I finally put gallery glass window paint over them so the dogs couldn't see the squirrels but the windows still emit light. I had to for my own sanity. The dogs still stand there and look through windows that they can't see through. Yep them are some smart dogs.
So now the dogs have taken the pursuit of squirrels to new heights!
I think them squirrels just don't know who they are messing with. Know that chicken pot pie recipe....It works great with squirrel!@
