In the evening I saw that two rows of sweet corn had already puffed up with hillocks: they were about to rise. In the morning I went out into the garden after breakfast and almost got a heart attack: instead of seedlings - funnel-shaped pits and not a single sprout! Only around there are traces of jackdaws on wet soil.
No wonder: you had breakfast, and so did the jackdaws. How not to be tempted by a sweet grain, and even germinated, useful! Large birds specialize in such dirty tricks, guarding nearby and squinting at the beds. And in order for them to be discouraged, it is necessary to process the grain with something with a pungent smell before sowing: infusion of garlic, kerosene.
