I had this really great looking acorn squash growing the last few weeks, and I was really excited about it. I hadn’t noticed it until I came back from Mexico and our road trip, when it was suddenly quite large, about the size of a small honeydew melon, and I figured I’d get to eat it in a few weeks.
Well, last night I pulled into my parking space, which butts up against the fence that serves as the border of my yard and my garden, and the squash was missing! I asked Fermin, and he said he hadn’t seen it, and clearly no one from my house would have just taken it off and eaten it (they know those vegetables are like my babies), which means some mean alley passerby probably saw it and decided they had to have it.
I hope they are enjoying it! Jerks.
