 “Damn , that little shit!” .
. I had spent countless hours , at this point , dealing with these armored intruders. The garden , fruit trees , new grass.
 This time ,the little plum tree.. and for the second time ...

 I can understand why they like it , so . I’ve a food forest ,in the middle of nowhere, and it’s the best edible buffet , for miles ..I felt this indignation towards the Armored adversary,  for years ,until I had a friend show me how easy it was to prepare the invader ..

Now , I figure , I can sustainably harvest one of these little beauties ,as a main food source ..indefinitely..

I feel so blessed ..

What does an armadillo taste like? Chicken? Beef?

The problem is the solution.
I am creating my food forest to attract animals for me to harvest, with a by product of fruit.

Certainly!  Armadillo is quite nice.  My friends from TEXAS swore by armadillo pie.  We don't get them this far north.  They have made it into north Georgia, so they will be here eventually.

There were varying textures and taste ..I’d say it was closer to deer or beef . The great thing was , the fat was good and plentiful
