I Give Up

I went out to check my pomegranate tree today and they’re gone. My pomegranates are gone! I checked them last week. I had about thirty and they were getting bigger every week. And now they’re gone. They were still rock hard so I didn’t think anything would go after them (they don’t get ripe until October so they had a long way to go). I looked around the area and found this:The seeds are still white for God’s sake. I would have had to take a hammer to crack one open so how could this happen? What kind of mutant zombie vampire squirrel could do this? I give up. I’m despondent. Take everything, you mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, fruit-stealing squirrel. I hope you broke your tooth. But you don’t need teeth to eat tomatoes so go ahead, take those too. What else do you like? Peppers? I’ll plant some. I hate to give up but the squirrel has crushed my spirit. Maybe I should take Dana’s advice from July 10th and put some watermelon out for him to eat so he’ll leave other stuff alone. I’ll just wait until I see him and toss it to him. The whole melon. If he survives, he can eat it.

    That varmint! I think you should trap him and move him somewhere else. They sell traps at the hardware store, and your gardener could have them set up (they are cages made by a company called Havahart). Just put some apples in there and the squirrel is contained. Then have your gardener drop him off…… far, far, away. But you can taunt him really good before they carry him away. By the looks of that pomegranate, I think I would. Nah nah nah nah nah nah!

    Oh no! I’m sad 🙁
    You really sound defeated, Jenny. I’m sorry they destroyed your pomegranates. I had to do something to try and help you find a way to get rid of the squirrel problem. This is why I don’t like squirrels. They bring havoc to homes and yards. They are a major pain in the rear…

    If this doesn’t sound interesting try googling to find ways to control the problem. Please don’t let those grubby grabbing squirrels win. I think you are a little bigger and smarter than they are…

    Use your smarts, Jenny. I have faith you can out wit those varmints 😉
    I’ll say a little prayer for you, so maybe they will leave your yard alone 🙂

    He would probably want the tomatoes peeled.
