My dear Uncle Ossie needs our help!
Uncle Ossie gardens in Pennsylvania, and when I say gardens, I mean that he gardens!
I grew up watching him and my late Aunt Josie grow and preserve their harvest. I wish I’d gardened years ago the way I do now. It would have been fun to share the love with Aunt Josie.
Uncle Ossie seems to ebb and flow with things that happen in the garden. Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate or a neighbor’s tree might block the sun a little bit, but this problem has him stumped.
The raccoons are eating his corn!
I mean decimating it… every year for the past few years.
He’s trapped them, sprayed concoctions on the corn (last year it was made with ghost peppers), and tried other humane ways to move them along, but they keep coming back!
Any ideas out there?
I told him I’d ask you. I know that there are some amazing gardeners who stop in every now and then. One of you must have the raccoon elimination from the corn patch secret!
People still eat corn, don’t they?
Feel free to share my post widely with anyone who might be able to help.
Love and thanks,
Michele and Uncle Ossie
