I don’t know how well you can see from this but there are four stinkies in this clip. Try fullscreen.
I am escalating my non-harm measures to encourage them to leave. I don’t know what I’ll do if that’s not successful.
One idea online was to trap them. WHAT? And then what? Put an agitated skunk in my car? I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Here’s a story from when I returned from Orleans.
My neighbor texted asking if I wanted figs. “SO SO SO many figs,” she said.
She was not exaggerating. Their tree went nuts and we’d already eaten all the ones from our tree.
They picked me a GINORMOUS bowl. It was Sunday night after a long day of driving and unpacking.
I set aside enough for snacking and a salad and chopped the rest, added a boat of sugar and put in the fridge.
Monday I came home from work and made and canned jam.
Spontaneous canning is not a thing that I do but we can’t let figs go to waste. The result looks a bit runny but I’m sure will taste great on yogurt or ice cream. The uncanned bit that we’ve been eating this week is delicious.
