As you can see, the “Me Juice” thing didn’t work (see “Secret Sauce” entry). I just happened to be sitting in the back and heard the wind chime. I looked out of the window and saw this invader hanging on the tomato trellis. I ran and got the camera and was able to snap this picture while he was sitting there deciding what to do when he heard the door open. The first thought I had was to throw something at it, but I didn’t have my stockpile of rocks. The only thing small enough in reach were some cherry tomatoes I had picked earlier today. I decided against it. Didn’t seem to be a smart move to throw tomatoes at him to scare him off. I’d just be throwing dinner at him.
Well, now what do I do? It did rain today and I have been watering the tomato bed. Maybe the “me-ness” in my Secret Sauce has been diluted to the point of being ineffective. I’ll give it another try and reload, figuratively speaking, my weapon.
I hope this works. I don’t mind sharing my veggies with people, but I don’t want to share them with pests.
