I Was Pretty Darned Upset....Let Me Tell 'ya!!!!





When we got to the cottage on Friday...

After unpacking the car...opening up the windows...sweeping up the buggies...

I then head down to the beach...

To check out my cute little veggie patch...

To my horror...the 2 watermelons....and a cantaloupe were OFF THEIR VINES!!!!

What the heck???

On closer inspection...there were 2 bite marks on the watermelon!!!

Guess the stupid annoying Raccoon must have decided he wanted to sample a few things...but...he only tore into it...and left it in misery...in the hot sun...to dry out...GOSH DARN...I was so excited about those Watermelons!!!

I did spy another cantaloupe still attached..and another wee watermelon starting...







The pictures are rather poor, as I took them in bright sunlight...and when I tried to edit and add my initials in Picasa...of course...the editing won't work right now!!!    So...the pics are a bit drab....but I just had to share my grief with you all!


Hope you all had a great weekend...we certainly did!!!
Back tomorrow with some great shots...
After some "Doris Day" editing...hahaha!!!


Enjoy the rest of your evening...


                                     Cheers!  :o)

  2. The raccoon could have at least eaten what he started.

  7. Bad raccoon! I have similar problems here in Australia with the possums - they eat everything including flowers and buds

  8. OMG, that racoon needs a long spell on the naughty step for sure. What a shame as they look like they would have been wonderful to eat. Hope that the other things are as good as they look - more cucumbers I see, you seem to have the touch for those for sure.

  9. Oh no, how disappointing to arrive at the cottage and discover that damage. Hope the rest of the crop survives.
