Why do I grow in containers and fabric pots? One reason is that it rains a lot enough to flood places and our drainage is not the best. Another reason is armadillos dig up everything especially if it is newly planted and the soil is loose. So here is the evidence in my onion bed. They also like to make holes of various sizes here and there in the lawn. It is a very good thing most of my onions are planted in fabric pots. I sprayed hot pepper in every bed where I don’t want them to dig and it seems to work for about a week or until it rains so it helps short-term but not forever. The Mole Max works to repel cats and squirrels but not armadillos. The hot pepper is more effective for armadillos but it has to be applied weekly. It did console me somewhat to harvest some beautiful tasty tomatoes from the greenhouse.
