Greetings fellow garden enthusiasts!
I know, I know, just over a week ago I’ve published a post about how I outsmarted the evil squirrels, and now there’s a new post… I even had the nerve to say that they’ve calmed down somewhat. Guess what – now they’ve outsmarted me!
Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of this in my planters that are seemingly covered with netting:
And then some more:
And then by chance I actually witnessed a squirrel gliding through a grid of the balcony fencing, which I foolishly assumed to be too small for my local fat squirrels… I guess they thought so, too, at first, but then gave it a try, and by now probably every fluffy rodent knows that they can squeeze through.
I guess it’s time to stretch a second layer of netting on the outside of my balcony? I swear, it will soon look like it’s a bed covered with meshy curtains, not a garden. Anyway, I started attaching the second layer of netting…
Are your garden-wreckers behaving?
