those of you that don't garden, don't understand how much those of us that always did continue to want to...go enjoy yourselves and buy to your hearts content at the farmers market...ya can take the backyard farmer out of the garden, but ya can't take the garden out of the backyard farmer
The planter is elevated. We're talking two fish heads. We live in a CYV.

Thanks to all that replied with good suggestions, plus the wonderful fisherman who pm'd me.

for a refreshingly new aroma, I like to put a few fish heads under my pillow at night...

Tony Soprano can get you all the fish heads you need at a very good price.

The rest of the fish is still attached as it just fell off the truck today.

I read a farmer's trick was to put a fish head in each hole when planting. It was suggested to freeze the fish heads first to avoid dealing with yucky heads.


I would imagine Winn-Dixie and Publix get their fish already beheaded. Maybe Lighthouse Seafood? Blue Fin probably uses theirs to make stock for chowder.


I wonder if I put half of a can of sardines packed in water into each hole if that would do the same thing.
That would work fine. A full can would likely work better. That is what the Indians did. Or was that for corn?

a raccoon or a 'possum' would have no problem reaching an elevated planter....

keep a dust pan and a broom handy to cleanup in the morning if you go with actual fish heads

I went with sardines 6 weeks ago. Absolutely no problems with critters. Lots of blossoms and the first couple of tomatoes showed up 5 days ago.

I couldn't resist. You can usually find a fish head on the front end of a fish. So much for good judgement.

Think how much easier it would be to get fish heads if you found a two headed one
