Clever Gardening Technique

Plastic Bags Camouflage Ripening Fruit
Plastic grocery bags can help deter birds and squirrels from enjoying ripening tree fruits before you get to. Twist the handles around branches to keep the fruits covered during windstorms. Be sure to clip a hole in the bottom of the bag to release rain water so you don't have mushy fruit when one falls from the branch!
