Casualty, Men Down! I have been watching my two celebrities coming in for two months now. They have even been featured in two posts with their magnificent girth and beauty. Apparently I wasn’t the only one keeping an eye on their slow maturity. Four days ago they started to turn orange. No Bugs, No Worms, No cracks. Three days ago they started to get rosy cheeks as the orange began to slowly change to a red. Two days ago they began to turn almost all red, with another day left of maturity. I watered the plot with worm tea, brewed from worm castings, just to give the roots another boost of energy to focus pushing nutrients on to their fruit. Then yesterday we went to pull them and STOP.
What was the mysterious creature? Did it just happen into them at the perfect time? I doubt it. That means that this was premeditated. Which would most likely mean it will come back.
Was it skunk? I didn’t smell anything out of the ordinary.
Was it a Possum? Chickens didn’t make as sound
Was it a raccoon? Chickens didn’t make as sound
Was it gofer? No trace of gofer holes anywhere.
Was it a chupacabra? Hmmmmm
