RE: New Garden Pest

I think you probably have all of your faculties intact Zem. ;-) And aren't
you fabulous for rescuing little man! My advice, invest in lots of tomato
cages to protect your plants at first and teach him where the "garden path"
is. My guys all have their route, although they will stray from it in the
event some small creature they need to chase is in the foliage (ie rats).
I garden around them and don't worry about the occasional crushed flower. I
DO draw the line at digging holes in my garden. Fill them back in and put
some dog poop on top of the soil. Works every time. Of course eventually
they dig another hole and the process starts all over again. 

In the winter, it will look like you're growing tomatoes cages.
I'm sure he's going to love his new home! You're wonderful!
