Do you know about the flour trick?

Sprinkle flour outside the hole, then you can track who is going in and out by the direction (and number) of their tiny paw tracks. This is a good way to know if mama is taking her babies out and about yet.

I'm glad that you let her go, but raccoons in one's attic are a bad idea.

Maybe wait until fall or early winter when all the kits should be weaned and gone, then trap her again and release her far away? Make sure you find the hole or holes that allow her into your attic and seal them up after you get her out. Use really strong stuff to seal the hole. Raccoons are good at ripping things apart.

A few years back I planted some snap peas. One day the sprouting seedlings were happily leafing out; the next day they had all been nibbled down to the stalk. I suspected the involvement of a wascally wabbit, but I could never prove it. Now we use bird netting to keep hungry critters away from sprouting plants. The netting seems to work pretty well.

He also knows that if we Europeans where allowed to carry guns the outcome of all the terrorist attacks now happening would be completly different.

Not so - recent cases in point: San Bernadino and Orlando.

Cook's Illustrated has a great fruit crisp recipe. If you have ripe nectarines, nectarines and blueberries make a really terrific fruit crisp.

I don't, personally, care for The Cook's Illustrated blueberry cobbler recipe. I made it once and I didn't like it. Their cobbler topping contains cornmeal, which I find to be unpleasantly gritty in baked goods outside of cornbread, where cornmeal actually belongs.

My opinion on cornmeal, however, is not a popular one at the moment. I've seen lots of recipes lately for all sorts of baked goods that incorporate a bit of cornmeal for texture. Cornmeal seems to have become "trendy".

Gary, your contributions to this thread are high quality!!!

Thank you for so generously sharing your insights and expertise.

My mother was a diabetic who didn't work at things much. She paid for that in her later years. I salute those of you who are working so hard to get a handle on this challenging disorder.

Welcome!!!

I can't help you with technical stuff as machines sense my fear and malfunction just to spite me, but I am happy to answer any questions you may have about raccoons.

I'm surprised that the reindeer don't eat the potted plants. We have mule deer out here and they are like goats! There is very little they find unappetizing.

My in-laws in Wisconsin get them in the summer. Maybe the lightening bug population fluctuations you've noticed are based on dry vs wet summers?
