Mirror Trick to Save Raspberries
I get terrific production from my backyard planting of Heritage everbearing red raspberries but used to share the crop with feasting birds. I discovered Dancing Garden Mirrors online (www.dancinggardenmirrors.com), which I thought might offer a solution to my bird problem.
Small double-sided mirrors of various shapes are hung from overhead wires, where they move in the slightest breeze and shimmer and flicker from reflected sunlight. Hanging pieces of used CD discs achieve a similar effect. This mirror trick has reduced my raspberry crop losses, while providing delightful dancing lights in the backyard. Craig Hibben
