Our spinach is looking fan.tab.ulous! Popeye would be proud. But. The neighborhood birds are taking liberties with our produce! Last year I researched what to do to prevent them from utilizing our garden as a restroom and got the idea to use old cds. We hammered old cds shiny side up all along the top of our trellises and the reflection deterred the birds wonderfully. The cds dulled over the winter, not surprisingly, and my plan was to just replace with fresh cds. Adam had way more grandiose ideas, though. And, so far it is working great! Have not found a single bird pierced to the board thankfully and the neighbors haven’t asked if we are doing some sort of medieval torture experiment.
