I’m not a big fan of turtles right now. In one night, some
hard-shelled slow poke chopped down 60 of my tomato plants. I didn’t say anything out loud when I saw them, but I was thinking about all my relatives who like turtle soup.
OK, so I have plenty more plants, but these were already planted, dang it.
I researched methods to deter turtles and found out a sprinkling of diatomaceous earth around the plant will do the trick. Until then, I’m keeping them dusted with baby powder.
