Speaking of critters, how destructive are chipmunks? We have had a population explosion this year and they seem to be everywhere! Zucchini are best small, IMHO. The giant ones are good only for bread or some other recipe that requires grating.

Our experiment with the hot wire barrier has gotten nowhere. Well, not
really true...I was hoping for bodies (bloodthirsty I know) but that
hasn't happened. The critters are no longer eating the lettuce where the hot wire is, but if we are zapping anything it has not proved lethal. So
I don't know if they're not interested because what's in there is too
old, are avoiding it because they don't like the looks, or have gotten
shocked and are avoiding it. There is one rabbit still digging into the
enclosure around the soybeans but I am not noticing any new plant
damage, so I don't know what he's up to. I guess the hot wire has done
well enough that it's worth putting up early next year to protect new
seedlings.
