The Q&A Archives: Vegetables that squirrels won't like

Question: As a beginner I want to grow some vegetables in a container that squirrels won't bother. Any suggestions? I am especially interested in vine type (climbing a trillis) Will they bother snow peas? Thanks!

Answer: I don't think squirrels will be quite as interested in plants growing in a container as they would in things planted out in the yard, but there are no guarantees. You can plant peas or beans or even cucumbers to grow up a trellis. I'd give it a try and hope the squirrels don't find your treasures. Best wishes with your plant!
