Fig Massacre in Los Angeles!



A fig massacre has occurred in Los Angeles! I don't want to be sensationalistic, but this weekend a hungry squirrel was caught brazenly ravaging the luscious figs I had been growing in a pot on the front porch. Flaunting it's behavior in front of our eyes! This is the same squirrel that taunts the neighbor's cats by throwing things at them through the screen door in the morning. It's getting pretty vicious...



PS- Quickie Tomato Update: Last night I had to harvest ANANAS NOIRE/BLACK PINEAPPLE tomatoes a little unripe because the raccoons or possums or squirrels had already started in on the ripe ones...it's either you or me, baby...

Oh, those darn animals! Wherever you go, it's something. In Honduras, I have woodpeckers making lunch out of my papayas.

This summer has been terrible in the Animals Eating All Your Vegetables You've Labored Over All Summer department- it's killing me! It's very, very annoying.

Woodpeckers? Daaaaamn! We should think of some good recipes for squirrel, and woodpecker, possums, maybe even raccoons...
