If you have trouble with varmits eating your plants and vegetables, place some human hair around the base of the plant and up the plant, if so preferred. This will keep varmits away as they do not like the smell of humans. Works to keep squirrels from digging up bulbs. Keeps rabbits, squirrels and other varmits from eating plants. Your hairdresser will be happy to save clippings for you, or do what I do and keep a bag under your bathroom counter and put the hair you take out of your brush in there.
