In a way, it’s kind of like bribing garden invaders (whether
they’re deer, rabbits or insects) with something yummy instead
of what you’re trying to grow for yourself. Herbs that bolt easily in response to heat,
such as cilantro, should be placed on the east-facing slope so that they are protected from the afternoon sun.
The wildlife they are exposed to is often mediated by
technology or educational curriculum that just doesn’t offer the allure of
a virtual world.
