I thought this threads headline was so funny i almost spit out my coffee all over my computer keyboard when i first read it !(*-*)!
Yesterday was fail whale. Had to jump through all kinds of hoops to get us back up. Great squirrel pic! I used to feed 'em cookies right out of my hand when I lived in Sarasota, they are real skiddish around here.
Totally different disposition than the ones in the states, and they have a little batman thing going on...
Was that squirrel dropped off on earth by a flying saucer from the planet vulcan? (*-*)
Quote:Here's one neat trick that garden-writer Judy Glattstein has found to work: after planting new areas, lay old window screens in frames on the ground, covering the newly-worked up soil. The screen weighs enough to foil the squirrel, but allows for air circulation and rainfall. Once the ground has settled, remove the screens and store for future use.
Another remedy that some find successful is to actually feed the squirrels during the fall and winter. The theory is that the local squirrel population, when offered a handy plate of peanuts or other easy-to-get treats, will leave your bulbs alone. At the White House, the gardeners put up six peanut-filled feeding boxes to satiate the furry denizens there - and reduced squirrel damage on bulb beds by 95 percent!
Our squirrels are pretty shy.
