I guess everyone had their fill, because this plant was left over after they chopped it to the ground. All but 4 of the 30 plants were devoured.
This is what I found every 5 feet down the long winter squash rows. They had dug out all the seed and eaten the green growth from inside the shell. The sad thing is, I cannot replant. My window, of planting soon enough to get a harvest before frost, is shut. Hopefully they don't find all the squash planted down at the farm.
No amount of duct tape will solve this problem. I am headed to town to buy some live traps and a little box or two of lead poison.
