Last fall when I was clearing out my garden, I ended up with about five very large zucchini (about the size of a piece of firewood). I was pretty sure we wouldn’t get around to eating them, so I stacked them beside the compost pile and forgot about them. The other day when I walked by the compost pile, I noticed that something (probably a deer) had dug through the snow and started eating away at one of the frozen zucchini.
Those zucchini sat there for months before the snow covered them, but in the depth of winter when food is scarce, animals return and eat those things they had previously passed over and ignored, many times before.
