    Oops. Not a problem we have in England.  Although some people have the same problem with deer.

  • Nutcutlet it will recover.

    Figetbones its estimated that there are 10 racoons for every person here in Toronto and we have 5 million people.

    Well at least we can eat deer. I don't suppose racoon pie is very popular?

    Oh heck otnorot. I won't complain, or try not to, about squirrels.  Is there a market for racoon gloves in Scarboro' Canada? If not there ought to be.

    Glad you're still laughing & a happy gardener.  Checked your profile, bet you can give good advice, years of experience. image

  • I'm glad you said that FB, I was thinking i'm sure we dont have racoons.

    Otnorot thats alot of racoons, are you allowed to shoot them. I thought americans are encouraged to shoot them or trap them. They are a real pest for you guys.

  • Zombie Gardener we are not allowed to shoot them.I dont know about American laws but we Canadians are not allowed to use pistols/rifles in the city except in designated areas.

    Hi, otnorot. Just seen you on the morning thread.

    I'm sure you'll get them dug up and stored. Where there is a will there's a way. My Mum is 85 and does her gardening very slowly now, she even has a chair in the greenhouse, must add I've sat on it a few times.  image

    As Brumbrull asked, is there anyone that helps you in the garden? I don't mean racoonsimage We do most of Mum's gardening now, but she's a good supervisor.

    Enjoy your gardening. image

    imageBrumbull, I thought you might like to see otnorot's first post. Take my hat off to him, blinking racoons & you can't do anything about them.
