|Squirrels are pretty determined so it's hard to keep them out of the garden. You may need to fence your favorite plants with cylinders made of chicken wire - be sure to enclose the top! Some gardeners have success with setting dinner plates out near the plants and filling them with water when she waters her garden. The squirrels don't like to step in puddles of water. Hot pepper sprays sometimes work to deter them, as well. Wish I had more ideas to share!
