Gaia’s Little Pests

So here I am with Lauren out in Piscataway at a Raices micro plot work party, and out of nowhere this little guy appears from underneath some materials we have stored with a cover over it. We were able to catch him, but his brother got away through the fence.

Overnight these little buggers devoured all of our lettuce and some other veggies, much to our dismay. As pissed off as one may get, we have to understand that these critters are just doing what they do best, find and nibble veggies. Of course we carefully removed him from inside the perimeter of the fence and let him go back into the forest. He’ll probably come back as soon as he finds a way back in, but so be it…..you have to admit, he’s a cute little thief!
