Very nice and neat. Keep after the squirrels! I'm on a personal campaign against birds, squirrels, rabbits, and now geese!

Nice pics from your yard. I agree with ohiojay! Those pesky little creatures can cause so much havoc and damage.

I went out to the front porch yesterday and i saw a f****** squirrel running away from my mango trees! I couldn't believe it! They didn't do damage but I remember my nice little ponderosa tree that was given to me from my parents. They brought it back for me from Myrtle Beach. I left it outdoors, and when I woke up the next day and checked on it, all that was left was a stump! Don't know what ate it but whatever it was had to have a tough stomach!

Lycheeluva, your garden looks great. Keep it up! I hope you have a bountiful harvest.
Here's a quick guide for squirrels: Gamo Whisper air rifle in .177 caliber and Beeman Kodiak Heavy Match Pellets with a 4 X 32 scope. Problem solved.

Looks great Gerry. You're doing quite the nice job with all the fruit set. Thanks for posting pictures. I would love to see the fruit as it matures and gets color. Should be spectacular.

Hey Jay, be nice to the birds, but give hell to the squirrels! I mostly feel that way because the birds won't defruit a whole tree at once. Plus I'm a bird watcher and landscaped partially to feed them with a bunch of natives. So far they're not hurting my blueberries and mulberries much, able to harvest enough every day to keep me happy.
