I'd read that one method to deter cats from getting into your garden was to distribute citrus peels in the area. Cats, supposedly, hate the smell. The female cat, Idgie, truly detests citrus and will wince and run away if she comes anywhere near it. Apparently, Henry, the Orange Wonder, has no aversion to citrus. Or to garlic. The lure of the warm straw was too great. With garlic and orange peels all around him, he snoozes blissfully. You can see the bulk of the garlic in the yellow bed and a row of it in the bed in which Henry is napping. You can also see the fresh, dark row of compost in which I recently sowed peas.
