Fork Fertalizer???

What's the one thing that seems to have helped my potted plants grow the best? Sticking Dollar Store forks into the dirt to deter critters! I don't know if it was a squirrel or bird but after I mentioned my jalapeno was picked at HERE, the critter came back and snipped all the leaves off. Once I replaced the plant I took some advice bloggy buddy Tex-Wis Girl gave me and planted some forks too! Maybe not the friendliest looking planter, but I have big plans for that little tomato off to the left:@)
I did start sprinkling everything with cayenne pepper too, I'm sure that didn't hurt either... 
 Have a happy day:@)

  2. What a clever idea and I'm definitely going to give it a try. We had some critter eat the heads off of some of our marigolds if you can imagine. Who the heck eats marigolds ???

  3. Thanks for passing along the fork idea, Lynn. I'm going to try this as something is even eating at a few of my succulents that are in pots. Your veggie pot is looking good! Happy weekend to you.

  9. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try the fork thing. I have critters that dig in my flower pots and destroy the newly planted flowers and herbs. I have used cayenne pepper already, but the forks will help too! Thanks.

  10. What a great tip, makes perfect sense, will be trying this as the critters can wipe everything out very quickly.
