I know it's not an armadillo, not enough destruction. All it is doing is digging the dirt under my pots. I want it to go away because one of my dogs is determined that it not live here. Pots go flying, tags the same. Next year I hope to plant those hostas in the ground.

Possums maybe? Could also be skunks, but you would smell them. But I know what is in MD better than AL.

BTW, plant those hostas. They will be much happier in ground than pots.

Hmm no not possums or skunks. Something smaller perhaps chipmunks?
The hostas are mostly new from this year. I have the month of April to plant, if it's over, planting in ground is over. You can see what kind of soil the critter dug up, that's what I have to deal with. Even amended it's dry.

I see one small hole.

I'd guess chipmunk.

Ieave the hostas in the pots.
Deer food...

What's the deal with the sand?
Are you in the sandhills beach front from that inland ocean we had?
Or are you stuck with the mess that was brought in by the builder?

I live on the Alabama River Stone. Half my property is river sand the other half is river mud that turned into clay. Yay me, an equal opportunity gardener.
No deer. Thumbs up

I'm going to disagree on the hostas. They are tough as nails. Trailer-park tough. If they are doing well in pots, they will do better inground given occasional watering.

That assumes shade, of course.
