Thank you for the info.
What you relayed is actually something I have
thought about doing, but always at the wrong time and then forgotten when the
time is right. I have an area between the house and shed which accumulates
leaves and I always rake in a few more (tons more!!!). It also has a
overhang from a balcony, and I noticed the last couple of years that the earth
never really freezes hard in that area. I always notice this in the early
spring, but forget about it this time of the year. It would be a great
place to nestle a few more tender plants.
Now that the its fresh in my mind, I will put
it to use! I think I will lay down some bait, just in case.
Perfect timing, thanks again.
