Well it is that time again. Gardens are beginning to thrive and animals are starting to eat the the plants you've worked hard on. No matter what we try at our house we've never had any luck with keeping animals at bay. Dorothy Morrison lists a spell I wouldn't mind trying in her book "Everyday Magic".
She says to stuff old pantyhouse with human hair while chanting "Deter all wildlife from this place so that this garden thrives in grace." Then knot both ends of the pantyhouse to form pouches and place at the corners of your garden. Those that seek to eat vegetables will not cross into the area.
