Off the wall(Graphic evidence)

A fall from grace. The saga of my white jack o lantern continues. I think it may be ripe. It's too soon. I'll probably leave it for the squirrels. I like them.
I have another matter however. With a burrowing creature.

The burrowing creature and I can no longer coexist. It has become destructive. I can't kill it myself. My inner feminist is disappointed in my gutlessness. I've had to call a gopher man.

It looked at me today from inside that hole. Made me scream like a little girl. And stuck its head out later to chuck dirt. Enough is enough. Brazen little invader.

1. We had gophers all over the place in my Cal. garden

Gardening there was a paradise
except for the gophers.
and no handy solution.

3. Not for me.......

tho I prefer, when possible, trap and release elsewhere.

There is nothing like the experience of being in the garden, admiring the results of much labor, and seeing a plant start to wiggle around and then slowly sink down into the dirt as the gopher eats on it.

4. I have some hawks

Who patrol the roof tops for squirrels. I wanted to give them the carcass but I don't think they are scavengers.
I was more afraid it would smell. I've put up with that stinkin' gopher all summer. Hope that's it. Cost me $130.00.
