Terrific tips there, Jane. Thanks, I specially like the use of old shoes as wildlife repellent - going to set out my stinkiest shoes and see if they keep the dag-nabbed raccoon out of my pool cage tonight!

And thanks for the reminder about the matches for the peppers... I've heard that before but had forgotten, and we have a bunch of old book matches that I was going to toss out. Thumbs up

Wonderful ideas ... I'm going to do the soap in a sock thing as well as place some old sneakers in the garden (hidden out of sight of course!) Green Grin!
