Gum Balls Can Be Your Friend!

By Suga

I've been told all my life, you have to use what the good Lord gives you! Well, in the summer I get the shade from the gum tree, but in the winter months I get those dreaded gum balls everywhere. I decided there had to be something I could do with them.

Great idea, Suga. It got me thinking .... Sticking tongue out

We don't have gum trees up here in the Poconos, but we have plenty of pine trees - hence pine cones. Lots of little pine cones, too. I wonder if they, too, would keep squirrels out of flowerpots? And maybe kill slugs - plenty of sharp edges. If pine cones could be substituted, I'd be picking up pine cones all over the neighborhood!

I have used small pinecones in my big pots along with the Gumballs!
