Bandits! Grab the cucumbers!

Too late.

This morning we discovered these bandits in plain sight, full view, scarfing down some dog food that had been dumped.  Mom and two kids (one pictured).  Cute little things, eh?

Yeah, right.

Now we know what’s been happening to our veggies.  I knew darn well there should have been some things growing on those plants.  Not a single cucumber.  Three days ago we spotted one.  The next day, gone gone.

Dagnabbit, we put up a fence to stop the rabbits.  Those little masked buggers can climb!  We live smack dab in the woods.  There’s probably several more where these thieves come from.  They had to be pretty hungry to stand there eating while the little kids watched from the porch not thirty feet away.

Time to build a greenhouse!

  1. If you want them to forego the cucumbers – you could always put a trail of Doritos around your garden! They love junk food!
