Garden ScarecrowClick thumbnail to view full-size
In our garden, we spent the time to position our fruit trees in the best possible places for them to grow and produce fine fruit. However, the squirrels have been taking our peaches off the trees weeks before maturity. In the last few years the trees were loaded with peaches. But the squirrels got them all. They don't even leave behind one for us! We're all into sharing, but this has gone too far.
You can find directions online on how to make a scarecrow. I liked the method we used in the photos. The squirrels bury the young peaches near a large Elm tree that is near our peach trees and then wait for the flesh to rot off and then they dig up the pit to eat the inner seed.
Hopefully, Flop Along will keep the squirrels away this year!
Until we meet again... Francesca27
