Break out the over dramatic theme music; the squirrels and I are at WAR!!!
Remember back a couple months ago when we planted our peach tree, Georgia? Yea, she's awesome and has kind of become a part of our family (as in, I talk to her often when I water her and like to pretend she is a loud, sassy, southern women... because every family NEEDS one of those).

Then, it hit me. A couple weeks ago my good friend Jenn tweeted me this lovely piece of advise for Rocky (he too has an ongoing squirrel war over the backyard):
Bingo. Apparently unlike tigers, squirrels hate pepper (bonus points if you get the reference).
Because Chris is a super-chef-man, I knew he would have to have something in the pantry o'spicies, since I'm convinced he keeps every single spice ever made in there. Low and behold, I found this:
So I loaded it up in a spray bottle and mixed it together with some water (**side note: Chris, honey, we need more cayenne sauce**).
So there you have it... what is left of my poor Georgia.
Have you guys had any squirrel issues in the past? Has cayenne pepper/sauce worked for you? I promise to keep you up to date to determine if this strategy works.
