We have a TON of squirrels in our neighborhood. Actually to say we have a ton is a huge understatement. Our neighbors across the street put this giant pumpkin in their tree after Halloween and they have eaten almost the entire thing. Bill and I like watching them so we decided to test out our own squash experiment. We put three butternut squashes in our backyard tree and the next day there were only two left which you can see knocked on the ground here. By the end of the weekend they were gone. Watching squirrels eat squash is fun!
