Sadly, my watermelon disappeared within the last nineteen hours. I was showing if off–with pride–at three o’clock yesterday afternoon. It was gone when I checked plants this morning. Shame, shame on Lorraine!! Bird Screen and hoops were ordered–and received–days ago but I neglected to cover some of my plants. Yes, I’ve noticed that tomatoes were pecked, and strawberries disappeared, but it didn’t occur to me that the watermelon would fall prey to the squirrels or birds. Repeat: Shame, shame on Lorraine!!
