Fall means yard and garden clean up. Today I read an informative article on saving time and creating habitat in your yard and garden…the “lazy gardener” in me loves it!!! This comes to us from the National Wildlife Federation. Here’s the link; http://blog.nwf.org/2013/11/6-excuses-to-avoid-yard-work-this-fall/?utm_content=buffer276a6&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
The folks at K-State remind us to protect the garden from rabbits. Here’s one fix they recommend.
Begin Rabbit Protection Now
Rabbits may begin to nibble on newly planted trees and shrubs this time of year. Protect your investment now through this winter with at least 2-foot-tall cylinders of 1-inch-mesh, chicken wire, or similar barrier. Other control methods include plastic tree wraps and liquid rabbit repellents sprayed on the plants. (Ward Upham)
