Ann Althouse blogs about theft from urban "community gardens". In the comments, readers opine about urban versus rural gardening, and two-legged versus four-legged produce thieves:
I stopped gardening in my yard the day I saw a squirrel carrying away a fully ripe tomato in its mouth. That was after I saw a ground hog eating my tomatoes.
I'd rather see the wildlife than have fresh tomatoes. At least it wasn't people stealing them.
I don't understand this mindset. If you see squirrels making off with your vegetables, that just means you've stumbled on a way to grow meat.
