To date, the score is: Late Freeze: 4, Possums: 3 Green June Beetles: 1 and Me: 0.
This is my year. I can feel it. I've kept a daily watch for the beetles, designed and constructed my own cruelty free, chemical-free ground defense against the possums, and monitored the fruit daily for degree of ripeness. (A test that has required a bit of eating, I will confess).
At a half pound apiece, these beauties are worth the work. If you're in the neighborhood, come share.
