This is the third time the chipmunk has made a feast of the cabbage. I am trying to grow cabbage for the first time and I planted 8 of them, but only 4 yielded results so far. The chipmunk marked his territory over 3 of them. It’s only a matter of time it attacks the 4th one.

I have been humoring the chipmunk for a while now with cherry tomatoes and roma tomatoes. But the last 2 weeks I have been too busy to tend to the garden and forgot about “Chippy”. I guess he wants attention. As they say, “be careful what you wish for, you might get it.” But of course,  Chippy is well protected by his allies: my daughter and wife. The rule being if you are not with us, you are against us.
