Scattered chipmunks

I stepped outside this evening to try to figure out odd vehicle noises out on the road, and by my feet heard stampeding chipmunks…two, running like I broke up a party.

Meanwhile, here’s a tiny cucumber. The species is native to Asia, and now very widely planted and consumed.

    We are INUNDATED with chipmunks and little squirrels. And pine cone and other pine tree detritus constantly crashing down. LOUD!

    They are busy and noisy, I agree! Also, mice—don’t get me started!
