    shake on Alum, or mix alum with water& dishsoap and spray the plants. Alum is bitter, Squirrels are mostly aftr water but are not above stealing your maters. They don’t care for the alum.

    Dog patrol works too…make your pooch work for his spot in the home.

    Use toilet paper rolls to start seedlings. Fold one end in, add soil, seeds, and set on a tray. You can plant the whole thing since the roll will degrade into the soil

    Best to cut the roll in half and make it into 2 pots…

    BTW a great project to teach children!

    Wheat straw or Rye straw is cheaper and not as tempting to horses, and contains less weed seeds than hay.

    I used to play the coupon game, but found it is less expensive to send dear hubby to the store to do our grocery shopping. There are still things I purchase that I’m picky about, but for general stuff, he’s the man!
