Hi I think I have either chipmunks or gray squirrles digging up my green pepper plants and eating the seeds I plant. What can I put around my garden?

About the only way to keep the critters from digging in your garden is to cover the area with chicken wire - either make cylinders to protect individual plants, or lay the wire on the ground and cut holes in it for planting. The wire will keep the critters from digging; cylinders will protect your plants from being munched.

Best wishes with your garden!
