Collars for Garlic

Another 9 cutworms today.  Looks like they're not getting the whole "one row for you, one row for me and one row for Harvest" idea.  Greedy little things!

It's time to implement operation "Collars for Garlic".  Thanks to a tip from fellow community gardener and Executive Director of the Manitoba Eco-Network, Anne Lindsey, I used toilet paper and paper towel rolls for collars instead of my usual large yogurt containers.  I cut the rolls into 2 inch segments and put about 1 inch under the ground and 1/2 inch above the ground.  Let's see if it works.

Collars protect our garlic from cut worms.
And stay out!
