Squirrels & Containers

Today I planted my favorite, CARROTS!!! I’m so excited because I know they will do well. Did I mention that carrots are my favorite?
For the last few days I’ve been prepping my carrot container for planting. For the last few days I’ve been waking up to evidence that squirrels have been digging in the soil, hiding acorns. To fix the rodents, I made a row cover with some sheer fabric & weighted it down with some rocks after I sowed my carrots & radishes.
I’ve never tried growing radishes, but I figured I’d give it a go this season and let you know how it works out. I’m excited! Can you tell?
