Shoshe - thief!

Someone -- or more likely, something -- stole our butternut pumpkin! This year's pumpkin crop consisted of one small orange-and-green Halloween-ish pumpkin, one large-ish but funny-shaped Halloween pumpkin, and one little butternut. But when we went to harvest yesterday, there was no sign of the butternut! No deer-chewed bits, no stem, no sign of it down the hill :(

The weird thing was that there was absolutely no trace of it whatsoever. Maybe it was a deer-vole-woodchuck combination? One to eat the stem, another the flesh, another the seeds and stringy bits?

I hear that this year that there was a bit of a pumpkin shortage, so the thief might have two legs.
