Darn Squirrels

More trouble from the squirrels, they destroyed our gardens on the deck again, the lettuce and baby spinach. I have not even started my herbs because of them.  I did some research and I am going to try again.  Take several Mini M&M containers.  Punch holes in the lid.  Fill with vinegar and plant in the garden with just the lid exposing. The smell of vinegar is suppose to keep them out of the garden.  We will see, the red pepper flakes Todd sprinkled did not work.
