And if that wasn't enough one of my regular gray squirrel visitors put on quite a show for me for much of the day.
See, I tend to hang on to my uncut Halloween pumpkins until they rot away or the spring growing season gets underway - whichever comes first. Well, last week I finally decided to get rid of the last of them - specifically, the big one that had a huge hole in the back. But when I went to lift it I discovered that the bottom half held a gooey pumpkin soup mixture. Not knowing what else to do, I dumped this in one of my raised garden beds and worked it into the soil. Free compost, right?
Well, today Mr. Squirrel sniffed it out and fell crazy in love with the pumpkin seeds. He just couldn't get enough! I didn't think there were all that many seeds in there but there were clearly enough to keep the little guy busy (and apparently happy) for hours.
A real win-win situation.
And if any seeds remain behind and sprout, who knows? It might end up being a win-win-win-win-win-win-win-win-win-win situation.
Life doesn't get much better than that.
