I transplanted some dwarf marigolds and basil plants before leaving for a week long fishing trip a couple of weeks ago. When I got back, the marigolds and basil were all missing or destroyed. I didn't think bunnies etc. would be interested in these plants. Well, today I learned the answer. I saw a squirrel tearing into a peat pot that I had used for another transplant. The squirrels were pulling out the plants to get to the peat pots. Didn't realize that they would be that tasty. Need to find alternative seedling containers for the next sowing. :scratch:

Aargh! Squirrels are just rats with fluffy tails. They are super pests since they come in such cute packages that people want to feed them and encourage them. I'm forever pulling sprouted hazelnuts and walnuts from my garden beds and planters. I had no idea they'd go after peat. How odd. You could try making your own newspaper pots instead. There are YouTube videos demonstrating how to make them.
