    I have lots of squirrels here and I 've found they do the most damage, lost 6 pole bean starters just because "it felt" like digging.... lost a lot of produce last year because they would take a bite of whatever was producing, even jalapenos ! This year, I've resorted to surrounding stuff with nylon netting... they could easily chew through it but hopefully it's not as tempting if it's not easily accessible. Kinda of a pita though to reach in and maintain stuff

    I feel your pain. Two falls ago, when I planted my first bulbs, 24 hours after planting, a squirrel had dug up most of them. I caught him red-handed. I yelled and chased his across the yard like a crazy woman. I did have a few tulips and crocuses last spring that he left me, but not many.

    My bleeding heart is blooming, some phlox in the front yard, a dianthus and my forget me nots are blooming. I also found those d*** red lily beetles on my lillies. I am hoping to keep them somewhat under control now that I found them. At least they are easy to see, and finding the eggs are a bit harder, but I think i got them all...for now.
    My veggy garden is doing great. Beans are up, cukes, carrots, beets, peas, lettuce, summer savory, dill. I planted tomato and pepper plants. Waiting on my zucchini in a side bed to sprout.
    I also planted some pole beans all along my back fence. Will see how those do.
    The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker, for it involves hours of walking round in circles, apparently doing nothing." --Helen Dillon

    I purchased one container of wave petunias (two garden centres I visited were sold out of many plants), 1 dianthus, 1 mandevilla, 1 tomato and 2 basil. I plan on hitting Canadian Tire this weekend. Last year I bought wave petunias at Cdn Tire and they bloomed nicely. Marigold, Zinnias, geraniums, tomatoes, onions and herbs are added to my list.

    Here are a few things in bloom, I also am trying a few of those topsy turvey bags for the fun of it, 2 with cherry tomatoes and 2 with chili peppers in them.
