Birds eating my pumpkin seeds
I planted a lot of different kinds of pumpkin seeds and the birds are plucking them out and eating them. Needless to say this is unacceptable. Any ideas as to how to stop this? I direct seeded. I am now starting flats in a protected area to plant directly in the garden when they germinate, but I would like a way to direct seed and protect my plants. I might add that I grow quite a few pumpkins.
