|I grow a lot of things in containers, I'm beginning to feel "homey" already. |

Things just wouldn't be the same without Charlie (umm, and you, of course!)

|this is the first year i've done quite a few containers... I am really having an issue with squirrels. they are sleeping in one of my larger 'rail' containers and digging in the ones that have Caladiums. Uggg. All the impatiens were smashed.... |
any hints to keep these buggers out? I think it's the little red ones.

|Wire to cover the container. I have to use wire to keep my chickens from scratching things up. |
Even my bogs are not safe, so I use wire to keep them out!

|I use grated irish spring soap in my containers and it does a great job of keeping the critters out!|

Hello, Steven, WELCOME!!!!

|Thanks Charleen, nice to see you here too! Can't wait till everything here is up and running|

|I know it. I was scared at first, but not now. I love it!!!|

|Me too, I miss having everything all in one place!!!|

|What a good idea, Steven. I know I would stay away from anything with Irish Spring soap on it, but I didn't know it affected animals that way. Now if I could only find someone to grate it for me so that I wouldn't have to get near the stuff. Worst smell ever!|

|one application of the stuff lasts a long time too unless you get torrential rains.|

|I just about spewed Dr. Pepper out my nose and all over the place.|
Not a pretty picture, I know...
Zuzu- I couldn't agree more. There's a reason I make my own soap. yuck.

See another reason to use wire.
These are wheel barrow with semps planted, then covered with wire from my renegade chicken....Abigail

|Rides, are those solar lights in the first pick?|
Jul 7, 2011 9:43 PM CST
|Yes, dead one, I recycled them into pots. I drilled little holes in bottom for drainage. |
You like them??? I got one more to plant...
Jul 7, 2011 9:46 PM CST
|I like them!|

|I like them! I wish my neighbors would use them for that.....there is far too many solar lights around here.|
