      I am having a similar problem. I read some time ago( and now cannot find
      the information) about a planting a squirrel garden. It is plants squirrels
      particulary like so they leave your plants alone. Anybody know anything
      about this?

      One thing is that they appear to be attracted to areas of open dirt,
      where they think they might have buried something last year. Moving your
      plants around and covering the dirt with something (especially if you
      put some cayenne pepper on top) sometimes helps. I have the same problem
      though, and nothing completely helps.
