Pottsey,
Thanks for the URL on squirrels. Lots of humor and hope. My problem with
them isn't hostas---they eat apricot kernels. They used to get to the fruit
when it was orange-ripe. You would be sitting under the tree being
bombarded by little orange flakes of apricot as the squirrels bit away the
fruit to get at the seed.  Now they start attacking before the fruit has
even begun to color.
Can't keep them out of the tree---they thrive in my neighbor's thriving
(ugh) grove of alianthus, clamber into  my puny, overshaded lilacs and from
there, waltz into the "nut house." Maybe I will try cheyenne pepper---if I
can figure how to get it up into the tree !
Barbara W
