The War Has Begun

In the mornings, before leaving for work, I peak out my back door to see how my plants are doing. This morning, I busted two squirrels trying to sneak up on my tomatoes and kill them in their infancy.

And so the battle begins.

These tomatoes are green and about the size of a marble at the moment, but they’ve got a fine coating of black and red pepper. I wonder what squirrel sneezes sound like.
