    Gin--wow. Intense red, I love that.

    So what made the other ones headless? I feel like I missed a thread somewhere.

    No night invaders last night . I think a motion activated barking dog would work better , I saw one somewhere.
    Louis I don't know what ate them. Something small, It was 2 short seedlings ,did not bother the larger plants . I will let you know if the guardians work . How about one of the motion activated Christmas bell thingies that play music ? Gin

    The only problem is the frog croaks a lot if it is windy , drove me bonkers yesterday , I was planting near it . Good use for those aggravating bells they sound like they have a sinus infection . lol don't think they would work need a sharp noise to set them off , The crack of a 22 ????

    LOL, Gin!

    You need a motion activated bagpipe! That would scare the varmints away for good! (I hire out...)
