Sorry, Beatrix

Once, this planter had three kale seedlings and one purple cabbage seedling.  One kale and the cabbage were early casualties. Then, left alone until some near-miss hole digging last week.  When I got up this morning, my two kale were still there.  An hour later?  More carnage.

I hate squirrels.  They don't even eat the plants, just dig and destroy.

Since trying to garden this summer and encountering massive squirrel damage, I've got to say that I am re-thinking my response to the Peter Rabbit stories by Beatrix Potter.  I am now totally on Farmer Brown's side.
