Something tells me the squirrels in our area are practising birth control… or they’ve moved to a squirrel-loving neighborhood far, far away. We haven’t heard much scurrying on our metal roof and gutter, nor any loud squirrel-squabble on our front oak tree where the large busy bird feeder hangs. nor see any “claw-print” on our bananas which are ripening… Yippee!
This a bunch which can be observed closely and frequently when sitting at my laptop table ~ no squirrel (so far).
A bunch in our backyard began ripening & we (the owners) began the debate of whether to harvest or not ~ in case of a possible attack (like in the past) by the Squirrel Squadron.
We decided the proverb “Better Safe Than Sorry” applies in this case so out came the knife and down came the bunch. We’ve had some with cereal, made smoothies and left the bunch hanging from the arbor over our back patio, visible through the glass door, (instead of the garage) just to see if the nasty squirrels will attack.
Our Australian guests are arriving tonight … guess what we will offer for breakfast tomorrow morning?
