Can’t WinPosted: March 15, 2020
I used to have two large vegetable gardens. I did everything I could to keep the animals out and nothing worked. So, I had the good idea to get a raised planter for lettuce that rabbits and other terrestrial animals couldn’t reach. Unfortunately, the squirrels could get to it and dug in the soil to bury nuts. Next, I covered it with food tents. The squirrels found that the food tents would make good nesting material and began to strip the fabric.
I put the tent back together, pinned it down and the next day the squirrels took the whole thing.
I reached my wit’s end and looked through the garage for anything to cover the planter. As you can see, I cobbled together trays, bent hangers and plastic mesh. Yes, the squirrel did squeeze between the trays and dug some holes, but there is still some lettuce left for me. It is hard to win against mother nature, especially if the opponents are her squirrels.
