We attempted a daring rescue of a baby hummingbird this morning. Happily we got one baby back into the nest, and the mom & dad came back to feed it. Unfortunately, one of the babies died before we noticed. :(
Oh, and the ground squirrels multiplied into a family of ground squirrels. Which are now living in the wood pile next to the garden.
In the past 24 hours they've eaten all of the leaves and flowers off of all three of my eggplants. Are continuing to eating the leaves off the tomato plants, corn, and are starting in on my parsley and basil.
So far, they don't like the pepper plants, cilantro, or strawberries.
I'm contemplating drop spots. And am planning to break out the 'ol wire cage trap.
