Terrific tips there, Jane. Thanks, I specially like the use of old shoes as wildlife repellent - going to set out my stinkiest shoes and see if they keep the dag-nabbed raccoon out of my pool cage tonight!

I agree

I think my old tennies would run anything off! Big Grin

And thanks for the reminder about the matches for the peppers... I've heard that before but had forgotten, and we have a bunch of old book matches that I was going to toss out. Thumbs up

Wonderful ideas ... I'm going to do the soap in a sock thing as well as place some old sneakers in the garden (hidden out of sight of course!) Green Grin!
