    Have you noticed a problem with ants or is it more for insurance? I don't think I've ever heard of ants attacking a garden before. Or is this like some kind of exotic Louisiana leaf-cutter variety? I am from New England, and all we have is the regular black kind and occasionally the bitey red kind.

    We have a big problem with ants out here and every time that I had some herbs planted in some pots outside, these tiny black ants set up their little colonies in them. So frustrating! We also have fire ants all over our yard. Those got into my flower bed at one time. I just want to know what to do if they decide to take up residence in my garden. I'm gathering up all the information that I can about gardening at this point.

    Oh, and about the ground hog. We have moles out here, but they don't bother veggie gardens, do they? Good grief! It seems like I'm planning a war stategy against all the critters around here! Lol! I really do love animals though.
