Clever Gardening Technique

Outwit Squirrels
The reason squirrels invade a vegetable garden is because they are thirsty. Most veggies, such as tomatoes and zucchini, contain a lot of moisture. Set up a watering station far away from your vegetables. Also, to keep squirrels out of your vegetable garden, plant marigolds and garlic around the perimeter. The odor of these two plants is not pleasing to squirrels, hopefully they will look elsewhere for their treats.
