So a friend came up with this revolutionary idea: Take material that was being thrown away at the plant where she works in Bethlehem PA and re-purpose it into a gardening item. Behold, Sprout Defender was born. These clever contraptions allow airflow, water, and sunlight through - but not critters who are hungry for your sprouts and seeds. They are made out of a material that will hold up for years and even come with the bamboo stakes to put them into the ground. Available in 3 or 9 packs, you will get a charge out of seeing your sprouts flourish, while the squirrels and bunnies sulk. Here is a pic of my veggies garden this year. Last year I used them only for zucchini and snow peas and they worked great. They are available on amazon.
