I entered my vegetable garden the other day and knew immediately something was wrong. My tiny sprouts of squash that should have been on my right were...gone. And a new addition had been created- a hole.
"Arrrrrrrgh!" I yelled. This was not what I needed, just as the cool weather was giving my veg and me a break and allowing us to get along. Who was this newcomer? I have never had this issue before??
Then I saw another.
This one going under the fencing and into the cinderblocks. But still not clear way to escape through there, so I'm not sure what the plan was for the digger.
Further down, my squash had taken a beating- or should I saw a biting as parts of the sprout were gone. At least some remained and I could hope for continued growth.
I continued to see holes the entire length of the garden. That evening, I fortuitously received the new pair of dog grooming shears that we had ordered in the mail. I immediately went to work to give Ginger her final grooming of the summer. And I took that big pile of dog hair and spread it all around the veggie path, hoping to give a little scare to whatever is intruding and digging holes.
Thanks Ginger, for taking one for the team!
