It's well known that raccoons like their crawdads with garlic butter.

Ugh. I planted a full bed of garlic, as I mentioned earlier. This
afternoon, I went to my garden to harvest some potatoes and found that
something had dug up my bed exactly where the garlic was planted. :(
Garlic? What in the world gets into garlic? I've never had that happen
before. I have plenty of berries and seeds for wildlife so why did
something pick garlic?

Thank you everybody. I'll look into that. I've been wanting to grow
and harvest it for YEARS. The only time I have ever grown it, was
next to my roses. It was supposed to be one of those "companion
gardening" plants to help keep pests away. So I never harvested them.
I could always get a book and start reading up on it...but you guys
always seem to have the ANSWERS! So thanks.
(I'm with you Tricia...think I'll go ahead and plant them. Oklahoma
winters are so unpredictable)
