The War of the Rodents

My herb garden is planted. I did the usual mix, plus nasturtiums, which I am excited to try in salads.

But the chipmunks are out of control. They’ve destroyed 3 basil plants and a nasturtium. Digging for no reason.

They have no idea who they’re dealing with as this isn’t a war I will walk away from. I sincerely hope it doesn’t come down to physical harm. The vegan in me would find that distasteful.

I have tried:

  • Tinfoil
  • Rodent repellent
  • Cages
  • Plastic forks (partial success)
  • And now fake snakes ordered from Amazon

Bring it on chippy. I really want pineapple mint mojitos and homemade pesto.

Suggestions welcome.

Preferably nonlethal.
