I also planted some rampant punkin vines but the squirrels chewed up every fruit! How in the heck do you keep them from gnawing on your pumpkins? Is it your beautiful dog that scares them away?

For some reason, the squirrels rarely visit our neighborhood so we don't have a problem. In a quick search, there are suggestions about using scent repellents, such as peppermint essential oils, homemade pepper sprays, vinegar, vapor rub, etc. Good luck!
