Pomegranates wrapped in panty hose
Today, on my three year old tree, I wrapped all 15 pomegranates in knee high panty hose. This is yet one more attempt to keep the desert critters from plundering them  - always and without fail exactly 24 hours before I decide it's time to harvest. My friend Stacy suggested this method. Note - Stacy has a wicked sense of humor. Did she send me on a SNIPE HUNT? I'll report back in the Fall.

Reporting back - Bummer. It works to keep birds from eating the fruit but the fruit starts falling off the tree before ripening. Probably the stockings retain too much heat and interrupt the ripening process.
