I've always liked the scent of Irish Spring, but have been looking into other uses for the soap. Moving into a new development as we will be in just about 3 months, I'm sure we will be displacing lots of small wildlife from the area. I intend to try to get along with them (including the snakes), but I hope to deter sneaky creatures from ruining my proposed garden! I don't mind sharing, up to a point!
So it seems that the strong scent of Irish Spring is a deterrent to many critters. We will see how it works! According to what I read, you can sprinkle shavings of Irish Spring around the plant stems and they will keep them relatively pest free. And it's all relative. I'm sure I'm the pesky critter to all the other critters who would like to invade my garden! I am really looking forward to growing a garden, as well as to provide some entertainment for the neighborhood critters! You know they enjoy the game as much as we do. But my aged brain doesn't stand much of a chance against a horde of critters! I wonder how Rocky is going to react to it all. He will probably ignore them when I'm not around, and then jump into action when I appear. "I'm workin' for ya, Mom!"
I am so happy to see that daytime temps will be lower in the coming week, at least if you can call the 80's and 90's "lower".
