Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater

Had a wife but couldn’t keep her

Put her in a pumpkin shell

There he kept her very well.

Traditional nursery rhyme*

Not really sure what’s eating or, to be precise, attempting to eat our pumpkins but not taking (too many) chances.  Absolutely refuse to live in the pumpkin patch with ’em, though.  (Sorry, Andrew!**)

Squirrel, raccoon, other?


*Exactly what kind of tradition are we, er, espousing here?

** My husband.  Come to think of it, he does eat pumpkin.  Don’t get any ideas, mister….! 🙂
