You may have noticed that we seem to have this love/hate relationship with the critters around our house. Remember last year the Cedar Waxwing attack? Followed by the dead squirrel in our driveway, followed by a never-before-seen(nor since) duck patrolling our driveway.
And then, there's the recent infestation of FLEAS, thanks to the rabbits in our yard. (Poor old Bonnie.)
And Doug has been thinking long and hard about shooting things with that pellet gun. Long and hard.
Well, we thought we had a renegade zucchini plant invading our flowers along our driveway. Or maybe it's a plant I couldn't remember planting. But Doug thought some more. . .
. . . while looking out at the farm, from a garden, on the Grand Forks Garden Tour. . .
. . . and then, he figured out what this was!
He figured out that this, creeping up our steps, is NOT a renegade zucchini plant, but a pumpkin patch! And he remembered the squirrel that last year tore apart our Halloween pumpkin at the top of our steps. . . . and planted a crop of pumpkins!
Well, let's see what happens next!
