toasting relocated ‘chucks on groundhog day
LET’S RAISE A GLASS TODAY TO RELOCATED GROUNDHOGS, toasting the ones we managed somehow to outsmart. That’s one such captive in the garbage can, above—remember?—about to be literally driven away from the garden (by a licensed nuisance-wildlife handler, since regular citizens are forbidden to relocate animals by law here). It was a highlight of my year in 2009. Happy Groundhog Day. It will be another “Just Say No to Woodchucks” year here at A Way to Garden, but I won’t try this naive approach to ridding myself of them ever again. You can’t fool Mother Nature, you know.
