In response to my post on Picking Potatoes, a reader had the following question:
I would love to have success with potato planting! My husband and I have tried twice, and yet they all get dug up and stolen by chipmunks and the like. Any suggestions? We have tried container planting also, but those rodents are persistent.
I haven't had to face this -- we have hordes of chipmunks, but they seem to leave the potatoes alone -- so I thought I'd open this up for discussion. What can this reader do to prevent her potatoes from being stolen by persistent rodents?
