    Exactly Keith, but I have my pepper spray for next time...He has very large eyes so I'm hopin that will do the trick :D

    Valhalla, He ate up my onions oddly enough, went after a new redbud tree and demolished my lettuce. However, after my fit lol I managed to save the onions, the tree will live but had to pull the lettuce. Such is life on the farm I guess, but in all my years there this is a first :p

    Some tiny tomatoes(bonnie original), mild jalapeños, and sweet bell peppers are starting to show. Nothing yet with the squash, zucchini, or cucumber plants, although something has taken a liking to eating the leaves on those. Ma applied a canola oil/water mixture that's supposed to keep insects at bay, will have to see how that works out...

    The squash is blooming, and I know some folks fix the blossoms to eat, but we usually wait for the other parts to cook, lol. :D

    Best taco I ever had was squash blossom. Squash, bean, and corn grown together was the basis of Mayan civilization. Together they make the complete protein. They'd plant all three seeds together in one hole. The corn stalk would support the bean. The bean would pull nitrogen from the air and put it off by its roots to fertilize the corn and squash. The squash would cover the ground to protect the limited moisture.

    Cucumbers make an appearance. Future pickle, salad, or sandwich applications...
