So I came home today to literally every single community pot I had on my deck ripped up and broken seeds everywhere... It was definitely a squirrel because no bird here could do that much damage and I saw a squirrel on my deck two days in a row before this happened. Any way to protect community pots from squirrels?

CFPACS Board is currently considering a morning stop over at Flamingo Gardens then on to a cycad nursery that will be opening up just for us that day. Details on Sunday to follow.
CFPACS does not have a host hotel but as there appears to be some big events happening in the area around that time, we suggest you find a place to stay sooner rather than later!
I thought it may be cool to post photos of the garden as it appears this winter. Please posts pics of your own garden as well. I am in North Georgia, a cold zone 8a.
