It just seems that in fighting oil wars the crops we produce in our own yards are battlefields more real than the ones on TV.

  

Not too long after I took that picture on the left the squirrels discovered they liked green tomatos on the vine. They got my whole crop before a woman I met walking precincts told me "once the squirrels start eating all your tomatos green just rip out the plants." I wish now I hadn't fed them so much before I cut off the free lunches.
