Last year it was mice. This year...I woke up to find 2 squirrels devouring my corn! I ran outside and chased them off. But after the meal they had, I'm guessing they'll come back. I can only hope they don't like tomatoes and carrots.
I managed to grab one fully-intact ear off the stalks, but there was close to a dozen more shredded ears laying on the ground. Based on this story, I'm not the only one to loose their corn harvest to squirrels.
Take a look at that ear, though! Those are some juicy kernels, eh? Once we taste the ear that is currently in the fridge, I think we'll resolve to give it another go next year.
