Urrggghhhhh… last night a possum chewed through my bird netting and attacked my tomatoes and strawberries. May have to try the lights.

We have found a wonderful solution – just by sheer luck, our plum and peach trees have come into fruit just at the same time as I put up flashing Christmas lights, Amazingly hardly any fruit has been eaten at all. I’m assuming the flashing Christmas lights scare away the possums….Now there is a reason to decorate your garden with Xmas lights. Ours are solar and only cost about $20 for a big string of them.

Great article. I have a huge pear tree (too big to net) and the possums have eaten all of the flower buds off it for the past two years. I’m going to try one of those solar powered devices and see how they go. For the veggies, I have a couple of great little pop-up nets now.
