Kelsey, the Fruit Protector
I was surprised to find whole ripe strawberries in my little strawberry patch that grew back from last year. I had long given up on growing strawberries due to squirrel bandits. However, this year I have Kelsey, who loves chasing after squirrels. I can now grow strawberries! I wish I had planted more this year.
I also find a lot less partially eaten peaches on the ground this year. I am sure Kelsey has been busy chasing the squirrels away. It looks like in a few days I will need to start picking the peaches. The cherries also managed to ripe without being snatched by the squirrels. I picked all of them today and ate them right away. They were super sweet!
