Gardening Pet Peeve – The Woodchuck

Call him a woodchuck, groundhog or whistle-pig, but he’s still my pet garden peeve. What do woodchucks eat? Whatever they want!!! There isn’t much that “Chuck” passes up, although he does have his preferences. In fact, if allowed access to the garden, he can be quite the gourmet. For instance, he waits until my zinnia blossoms are just about ready to bloom, then he eats them all at once. I yell at him and he zips across the yard and squeezes himself under my gazebo. (How can an animal that eats mostly vegetation be so fat?) woodchuck
