I loathe squirrels. We used to have at least a polite relationship. I have a problem with them digging up my porch plants, despite the fact that I have tens of thousands of acorns all over my yard. Now, however, they have gone too far. They dug up my fancy reblooming iris and flung it in the porch to rot.
The photo above it the shriveled up remains of what they must have dug up over the winter. I replanted it in the front bed. I hope that it's not too far gone. The other iris that I planted at the same time look like this:
Indianapolis, Indiana (USDA zone 5), United States
I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
