A mystery solved

Squirrels need their greens, too, evidently. At least, we saw one taking good-sized bites out of nasturtium leaves. We'd been wondering, but had ascribed the activity to cats. I saw a bumper-sticker saying, "Squirrel: it's what's for supper," but I couldn't make out the illustration. Some recommend sprinking chili powder in the pots to keep them from digging among the plantings. On a neighborhood list, some wag advised turning to a certain page in an older edition of Joy of Cooking. I didn't need to look; as I recall, it shows one or more diagrams of a squirrel without his fur coat. Squirrels are destroying all of last year's nests, which appear to be constructed in large part of ball moss.
