    in our backyard.  Our blueberries were disappearing and we finally found the culprit...a chipmunk was sitting there, helping himself to our berries. We have bird netting shielding the berries but the little critter tunneled his way under the barriers. Our broccoli has also been disappearing.

    I don't want to kill it /img/vbsmilies/smilies/frown.gif  any suggestions how to deal with this unwelcome guest and keep critters out of our garden?

    Make a spray from cayenne pepper a little olive oil and water. Spray your plants with this mixture. Respray after it rains.
