The strawberry patch is coming out as fast as I can dig.
The only strawberries that have graced our cereal are the ones I bought at the farmer’s market. There are simply too many thieving critters in our vicinity. The squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, snails, slugs, and birds have conspired to leave our granola un-berried. In fact, the berries have been disappearing faster than ever even though Scout-the-Wonder-Dog has been on guard duty.
Yesterday, as Dearly Beloved and I watched in amazement, we caught the culprit in action.
We were not expecting this. . . !
The fox has been guarding the hen-house.
