Gardening Tips!

Tip #1  – Moles

Moles have been mowing through my garden for two years now.  Last year they ate little rows in all of my cucumbers and this year they chewed my lettuce down to the nubs.  So, I bought a few pinwheels on Memorial Day for a couple dollars and placed them throughout; especially near the veggies they seem to enjoy the most.  At this point there has been no damage since installation!  The vibrations apparently scare them away.  Try it and save your garden from these pesky critters.

Tip #2 – Cage

Want to have more space for plants?  Grow your cucumbers up a cage/fence/lattice.  Whatever you choose, the cucs will climb up and still produce a healthy harvest.

  1. We have “voles” here in Texas, which are tiny little versions of the Mole, and just as destructive. I’ve found that even the “illusion” of raised beds keeps them out – have no idea why – but they seem to not mess with veggies in raised beds. Wonder if it is the same for moles?
