Readers, I am back with zucchini. I may have taken a break, but my zucchini plant did not. Ahem, in other news: we had a smallish skunk trapped under the trampoline. Other than being quite smelly, he really was a shy and unobtrusive fella. The full force of his funk, fortunately, was felt by no one. But still. No one was willing to frolic on the trampoline knowing Pepe La Pew was down there. On the advice of Animal Control, we made a little ramp from bits of wood and gently slid it down between the springs. I use the term "we" loosely here. It worked! He is gone. I think. Unless skunks can dig underground holes. Apparently, I know very little about skunks. Sometimes I see them on my early morning runs, so I cross the street and give them a wide berth. We haven't had the opportunity to really get to know each other, and maybe it is for the best.
