Oh..sweet-potato ! So if you remember the sweet potato video I posted about 4 weeks ago... well this is what it looks like this morning...
And for those of you that are wondering when to start looking for potatoes under the soil- well the plant has to flower first...then when the flowers fall off you can start digging! (and in the meantime you can snip off a leaf or two and feed it to your squirrel)

Ok so this is what a “pet” squirrel can do. Let me explain... I was bathing Maxwell and I accidentally hit the water on (it’s a touch faucet) and water hit his face sooooo he bite me in-defense, I told him to let go (one hand was holding him and the other was soaping him up) AND HE BIT ALL THEY WAY TO THE KNUCKLE! (Y’all like in terrible slow motion)🤭 the pain was intense to say the least!! -I’m ok and so is Maxwell. Something I never want to experience again. Ps I still love the little guy.

So what happens when your trying to eat and someone lets the squirrels out ... MoMo LOVES this bread ♀️. (I do nutrition vegetarian/vegan posts -I was recording for that and was interrupted 🤨)
Bread info below:

After lots of research and advice from multiple squirrel handlers I have changed Maxwell and MoMo’s diet to include LOTS of greens and low phosphate veg. With no more fruit! (On occasion a fruit can be given the size of a Lima bean or penny) they also get 2 blocks a day (I went back to henrys) and 1-2 nuts in its shell a day. A couple times a week I will include natural greens like dandelion, cloves, lamb quarters and fern bulbs.
Botany at its best... we have acres of ferns - so I started researching and here you go ... squirrel friendly as well (low traces of phosphate) . Maxwell and MoMo ate it....
