Diary of a Boy Gardener

We are in the Berkshires, the beautiful rolling hills of western Massachusetts where the season is short and the frosts sometimes win. Visit Sally and David's Gardens and see how two old farts spend their time helping what plants they can find their place in this world.

Exporting Chipmunks

OK, they have gone too far and must be banished. They seemed so cute when there was one here or there, but now they are everywhere. Worser, they have been eating things in the garden like strawberries. This is a sin against mankind.
So Sally agreed three days ago to allow David to use the catch and release traps to rid us of these cute little mammals.
David has just released the dozenth little chipper onto the nice rock wall about 2 miles up the dirt road into the woods of Peru. That's a lot of chipmunks, but probably close to the entire population.
Red squirrels best be on your best behavior or you will be next!!!!
