Clever Gardening Technique

Protect New Shoots
Use plastic baskets from cherry tomatoes or strawberries to protect newly-sprouted seedlings such as corn, cucumber, melons, and squash from birds. By the time that the seedlings have grown tall enough to reach through the tops of the baskets, they are less succulent and more firmly rooted, making them less tempting to the birds.
