Maybe grow some Lemongrass in pots indoors and bring them out in the spring. I hear Lemongrass repels snakes. Probably not Pine-snakes though eh? lolWell, the Pine Snakes are definitely out and about in Dickinson County. Last week one of them emerged from the lean-to of the barn. Knowing that Elaine isn't real fond of them, I kind of scooted him towards a firewood pile on the other side of the lawn and hoped he would take the hint.
With my luck? Probably not.Maybe grow some Lemongrass in pots indoors and bring them out in the spring. I hear Lemongrass repels snakes. Probably not Pine-snakes though eh? lol
Last 2 pics are my favorite..lolFound another dead Green Snake yesterday??
We don't see many of these snakes but this is the second one that has shown up dead this year. This one had its head stuck into a hole in the lawn - maybe 1 1/2" or so??

Not sure if maybe Elaine ran over it with the lawnmower?

Found the other one on the blacktop driveway??
Spring in the North woods!I don't think it was a snake - a rabbit more likely, but Elaine set some her plants (cabbage/lettuce I think) out to harden off yesterday. She had started them 5-6 weeks ago under the grow lights inside. Came back by a couple hours later and found that somebody had eaten almost the entire plant/s. Haven't seen her that pissed in quite some time!

You wouldn't want to be a rabbit around here any time soon because they are definitely on her hit list. She whacked a porky a few days ago that was hugging one of our nice Sugar Maples. Porkies aren't welcome in our sugar bush either.
