Dear Customer,

For most of us, it is time to prepare the garden and flower beds for winter. For many years now, my wife and I have extended our fresh carrot season by putting a cunning arrangement of hay bales over a row of carrots. The bales protect the carrots from frost right into January.

Last year we thought we had found the best arrangement yet, a pyramidal structure which covered all the cracks and kept everything warm and dry. But when we opened the main part of the structure in early January, it looked like a war zone. Mice had moved in. There had been much riotous living in the hay bales. Several pounds of chipped carrots were packed away in one nest and partially eaten carrots had been dragged into nooks and crannies everywhere. We half expected to find miniature beer bottles strewn around.

So this year, we need a new approach. But that is typical of all gardening. You deal with mini-disasters constantly, always optimistic that next year they can be averted. Maybe wire mesh or a plastic cat would foil them…

Yours sincerely,

Leonard G. Lee
President
