This little fellow was observed enjoying my peaches.

Bought a Hav-A-Hart trap: http://www.havahart.com/

A hand full of pumpkin seeds and this guy is now enjoying the rest of the summer up at the nearest lake.

Better peaches than killing and eating just the choice parts which happened to our easter ducklings some years ago.

vicious beasts them ...

'Twas in the Haight back then when we got Huey, Dewey, and Louie for Easter. The bandits broke into the pen and left Huey and Dewey without hearts and livers, but Louie survived, grew up big and strong and eventually made friends with other ducks in a lake in Golden Gate Park.

How are your tomatoes doing, Paul? Ours aren't that wonderful because of all the rain we've had in this region since March. A couple of our friends got that blight that's going around, but so far we've missed getting it so our tomatoes aren't totally ruined but they're not as wonderful as last year.

Not a single tomato from the garden this year due to the late tomato blight. I understand the blight came north with all of the tomato plants grown down south that were shipped north to the big box stores. Plus we had perfect wet conditions for the blight to spread. The blight isn't supposed to over winter up here since the ground freezes.

I had a nice family of rabbits devour most of the rest of my garden this summer so the harvest wasn't great. Rabbits don't like swiss chard, beets, cukes, onions, strawberries. The love peas, lettuce, the broccoli/cabbage family, and absolutely love squash. I picked up a new Hav-A-Hart trap yesterday, I'm going to see if  can move the family a few miles from here.

I planted two large rows of spinach last week. They will give me some harvest this fall, but I want them to over winter and give me early greens. I'm going to build two hoop houses to cover these rows.

We got a few tomatoes and some green beans but that's about all this year. A racoon climbed the fence and chomped on all the pumpkins and the rest of the produce so the garden is yielding very little for we humans this season. We trapped the critter and our township picked him up and relocated the thief.

Hopefully the crops will be better next year.

Pennsylvania law states you can't transport critters, they must be destroyed. Only gun I own is a nail gun, so we take the critters about 3 miles north to a nice lake......

Garlic is ordered, will plant next week, spinach is up, so the 2010 garden is underway!
