For those of you new to the squirrel scene, you need to know this: we grow sunflowers. They’re kind of our thing… and not just because squirrels love them. We love them. It was the primary flower in our wedding. Last year I planted a ton… thinking that nature would cull most of them. We got a ton. It was great.
This year, I selectively planted here and there. So far we’ve done okay. This year’s crop is grown from last year’s crop.
Last night, I noticed we have new livestock on our tiny farm. Ladybugs. Lots of ladybugs. They especially love the yet-to-flower sunflowers. So, don’t be surprised if a new diminutive, yet sassy character makes an appearance in a future strip.
