One of my neighbors has a loose cat… and he is digging in my raised beds as if they are his personal litter boxes. Drat that cat!
So I am implementing Plan A.
I bought powdered hot chili at half off and sprinkled it on 2 beds. On my blueberry bed I am test driving mulching with pine cones. Both worked last night. The cat only dug in bed 7 which is unfinished.
Hot chili powder kept out squirrels, dogs and cats without any other boundaries in my townie garden. Perhaps it will keep out roving animals here. In town I did not have to keep it refreshed, word gets around.
Didn’t even try that in Seattle, it rained too much.
Any tricks of the trade? Let me know. I will hang bells for the deer.
