I'm going to plant a few tomatoes and beans, things that squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, birds, and insects LOVE.
It there any way of protecting them from these predators?
P.S. I live in southern Ontario
Deer and rabbits are very partial to beans.
I have a deer fence...
Unfortunately, rabbits can be problematic to fence out... even when I add extra wire at the bottom.
I was walking around carrying a pistol... worked on a few, and the cats appreciated the fresh meat... but now?
They got smart... I don't see them... they still eat the beans and sweet potato plants...
So... a chicken egg (or two) in a watering can... beat it with a fork, add water... beat some more, sprinkle over affected plants, reapply after it rains, and after the plant adds growth... PIA!
Squirrels and chipmunks? Fairly easily trapped, cats love them too.
Not much of a problem at my house... I do so much to encourage the songbirds, they control the bugs.
Amazing how well it works to grow mulberry, elderberry, poke berry, deer berry, black cherry, blue berry... While I would like to get some of the above fruit... I rarely do... But... lots of birds!
