The critters have gotten to us this week. We’ve had a vole family for a while now that’s been eating the roots of our vegetables. I went out this morning and found another dead zucchini plant.
We have tried trapping the voles but it hasn’t worked. Instead we inadvertently trapped and killed a bird. I was so upset when I found the bird! So now those voles not only have zucchini roots but also bird blood on their paws. It’s amazing how angry you can get at these little critters. They are cute but oh so destructive.
Then, as I was lamenting my poor dead zucchini plants this morning (and cursing the voles), I noticed a huge pile of scat next to the garden hose.
I wish there was a way to get the bear to eat the voles.
