Meet Mr. Porcupine. Isn't he adorable? We think so! This time of year, we get nearly daily visits from him. He comes to feast on the newly green grass for a while. Usually, he waits until cover of darkness for his foraging forays, but now he's getting quite bold. Today, he was ravenously devouring grass at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, in broad daylight. He's hoping I plant some cucumber seedlings soon, because he recalls those were most tasty a couple of years ago. I'm hoping to keep my cucumber seedlings this year, as evidenced by the chicken wire waiting in the basement for planting time. And we're definitely hoping to keep our sweet golden retriever far away from our visitor.
