Farmer’s markets here have the fancy baskets, but put the vegetables in a plastic bag when sold
I have noticed all the dogs I've had and cats in general do not eat poisoned mice. They will chase, kill, destroy any that they can catch "running" around. When a posined one is found they rush to it and just nudge/nose it then leave it.There is a feral cat I have seen around so have been hesitant to use bait for the mice.
I can't remember the exacts but I've heard each tedding can also drop the protein a small percent. Also that grass that is heading out and seeding could also be of lower protein than younger grass. Older more mature, less protein. (More fyi for others than you)trying to not have to tedd it... have a couple days to dry without tedding ... saves money/fuel making less trips across the field.
I tried that, still had rats. Got Ramik at TSC, it disappeared, put out more (where the chickens couldn't get to it). Disappeared and so did the rats. Found a fair bit of it the next year in the upper area of the bank barn in a small pipe. I guess they were storing it for the winter, didn't make it to winter. It is a different kind of rodent killer, they bleed out internally. Thus nothing for a predator to ingest.Get some Just One Bite rat and mouse poison. It comes in bars, you break it into chunks. That stuff works.
But be prepared to label the potatoes so when someone comes back and says "I REALLY liked the xxx" you know what to sell them. "I liked the purple ones" doesn't cut it when you have multiple varieties of purple.I like Baymule's idea of making "introduction baskets" with a few of each variety. The baskets would also look really pretty and catch the eye with the different colors and shapes.
