The squirrels are eating my corn. They bite the stalk too to bring the higher corn down. I have a lot of corn so it is not bothering me too much. I know that squirrels will eat tomatoes too if they get hungry enough. The squirrels have destroyed about five corn plants.
Well even with the ants, squirrels, groundhogs and semi-draught, this garden has been a great experience. I have gotten great exercise. My wheelbarrow and hoe have been great allies. The pitchfork too.
The tomatoes are starting to come in and the corn is maturing. July and August will be great months for eating corn and tomatoes. Good tomato sandwiches with mayo, homemade bread, and a pinch of salt and lots of pepper.
