This year the chipmunks have been digging holes everywhere. A few weeks ago in order to add new herbs I bought a curry plant at the farmers market. I decided to plant it in a flower box on the deck but was worried the chippers would dig it up since they made several trips to that box every day to dig holes. Since planting the curry in the box they haven't even approached the deck.
They were still making holes in the garden and one ruined a watermelon transplant, so I stopped at the farmers market Tuesday morning and got more curry plants hoping they would keep the munks out of the garden too. I planted them right away and so far so good - no further chipmunk damage. We're going to keep another in a pot and move the pot to areas where we don't want chipmunks digging.
I tried cooking with fresh curry tonight. It is very good. Definitely a permanent addition to the herb collection.
