Squirrels and coffee grounds
Some of you know that I love my squirrels...even have houses made for them. But I love my plants too. Most recently I have citrus in pots. My husband spotted a fuzzy filcher as she hopped into the pot and proceded to much on the leaves of a meyer lemon...and this happened 2 days in a row.
Not to go down without grounds, I picked up a bag of grounds from Starbucks and put some on each big pot. I sprinkled them with water to make a smooth top of black grounds. That was last week and not a single paw print or leaf munched since!
I discovered this by accident last year and they left my big pots of pansies alone.
