This year you vowed your garden would be the envy of all your neighbors. So you've tilled, composted, tilled, mulched, tilled, planted, weeded and finally the seeds have sprouted. Ah, to see the fruits of your labor! Well, you won't if the darn rabbits and deer see those fruits first!
Newly sprouted vegetables are the most delectable niblets for the wildlife living just past the edge of your lawn. They know where to look. They know when to nibble. They know to be gone by morning. So here's a few household suggestions to keep them at bay.
Finally, we couldn't talk about home remedies without talking about vinegar! Vinegar is very acetic and can be used as an herbicide. Use it full strength but be sure to spray only the weeds. Plants will turn brown and die within two days.
So go out there and defend what's your's! Your root cellar is depending on you!
