Squirrel Part II

Well, the squirrel that bit the tops off my tulips has recently been eyeing my newly sprouted sweet peas.  Over my dead body will he get them. Over my dead body.

Off to the garden store I went.  Keep them growing strong and smelling bad was their advice.

$17 later I left the store with what amounts to a bag of old cow poop and a box of dried fox pee.  There is something just so, so wrong with this.

Hey has that stuff been working? We have a squirrel around these parts that we call "scrappy" because his fur is kinda messed up. We feed him peanuts and he eats the sunflower from our bird feeder. He did bite the heads off about 6 tulips that I noticed but he left most alone. I have sprinkled cayenne pepper to repel them and that seemed to work...somewhat.

Its been raining non-stop here for the past week, so I haven't had a chance to try the fox pee. I did discover that pepper sray wax worked nicely on the remaining tulips (not that there were many).  Spread 6 -  40# bags of compost in my gardens this weekend.  Hopefully this will have all my plants growing at manic speed.
