Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

Scare Predators Away

août 22 (anglais)As vegetables mature, they attract several pests to the garden: groundhogs, raccoons, squirrels, etc. To help scare them away, apply blood meal, an organic fertilizer, to the soil around the plants just before the vegetables mature. The animals will be afraid at first and avoid the site. By the time they finally realize that there really was no danger (and they will!), the harvest will be already finished.
