And now on to the season. Unfortunately the squirrels are not honoring our gorgeous new fence, so I have been researching solutions. Starting May 10th, Troop 110 will be in the garden constructing covers for the beds. I have also started planting garlic cloves all along the borders of the beds. I am very determined to beat these adversaries.... I have purchased some mint plants which I'm going to plant right near our little fruit trees and vines. Squirrels hate garlic and mint.
This coming Saturday, April 26th, I will be in the garden by 10 a.m. Skip Zelenka and Craig Davis are building a prototype bed cover so that the scouts will have something to work off of. Lisa Davis and I will continue with the garlic and mint project, with the help of at least one service-learner. Please join us. Eagle candidates Max and Sam will be up figuring out their projects.
