As you know from reading Grandma's corner, my Grandma is a serious gardener.
She is so creative with caring for her garden, and comes up with the most interesting tools, styles, and pest protection ideas. Wait until you see some of the things she has come up with. Right now she is having a "slug off" with my uncle. Stay tuned for results and tips!
Last year I was strolling through Grandma's garden and snapped some photos of some things that really made me scratch my head.
This rag is soaked in ammonia and keeps rats, raccoons, and other varmints out of the garden. Grandma says the problem is remembering to re-soak the rag but that it works like a charm!
Another option? Grandma says moth balls in small containers throughout the garden.
Keep those strawberries for yourself and try some of Grandma's secret weapons!
