Once, this planter had three kale seedlings and one purple cabbage seedling. One kale and the cabbage were early casualties. Then, left alone until some near-miss hole digging last week. When I got up this morning, my two kale were still there. An hour later? More carnage.
I hate squirrels. They don't even eat the plants, just dig and destroy.
Since trying to garden this summer and encountering massive squirrel damage, I've got to say that I am re-thinking my response to the Peter Rabbit stories by Beatrix Potter. I am now totally on Farmer Brown's side.
