Who carved my pumpkins?

They say homegrown is always better. I suppose that's what squirrels think too. Or at least that's what the evidence points to. BOTH my pumpkins (Or at least that seems to be the general consensus) got eaten by squirrels. It happens in the daytime, so it can't be raccoons or skunks, but I've come home and one by one my pumpkins are torn apart. The first one got the whole top tore off and now this one has those two small holes and a whole lot of mess.

The really amusing thing about my pumpkins is that they weren't carved, so it was harder for the little furry to eat the good stuff AND not one of my neighbor's pumpkins have been eaten. Neighbors on both sides have pumpkins in tact as do the neighbors across the street. The little furry bugger seems to prefer my homegrown pumpkin over the big store bought ones. Go figure.

The demise of a stuffed animal

Step One.
Buy a cute stuffed animal.

Step two.

Present said stuffed animal to your dog.

Step three.

Chewing and tearing ensues.

Step four.

Pitty the poor stuffed animal and question why you paid $5.00 for it in the first place when it only takes 30 minutes to eat.

Mystery veggies

When James pulled up our garden, he found these two orby things. They look like pumpkins, they may even act like pumpkins. The problem is . . . we didn't plant pumpkins. We planted crook neck squash and zucchini. These don't look like any crook neck or zucchini that I've ever seen. We have a theory that some pumpkin seeds got mixed into our zucchini seeds, but if that can happen, then you'd better watch out. You may end up with cabbage in your lettuce patch or peas in your green beans. Of course, this is just a theory and we're open to suggestions on to exactly what these are and where they may have come from. Oh, one more tidbit. Our garden is brand new this year, nothing but grass has been planted there. Any answers to our mystery?
