i’ve been growing a strawberry plant on my balcony, and we’ve had some trouble with squirrels (I think?) eating the flowers and unripe berries and digging in the dirt. I tried the cayenne treatment, and for the last few days it seemed to be working; we had this one beautiful, red strawberry growing. Yesterday Peter said we should eat it, and I said we should wait, since it was still a little white at the top. This morning I went out to check, and the little bastard has been tramping around, knocking over juice glasses, breaking stems on the tomato plants and EATING OUR ONE PERFECT BERRY!! grrr…..

Damn food chain…. Anyhoo, here’s a picture from yesterday… rest in peace, little berry.
