Hey there, new here! Just planting a vegetable garden (directly in the earth, not raised beds), but the squirrels are wrecking total havoc. Any ideas on what I can do to give my seeds a fighting chance?

I live in the middle of the woods so I know what you are dealing with.  
-You can get a cat or a dog.  My cats don't actively hunt the squirrels but they do keep them away for the most part.  My dog chases them but he really only wants to play with them.  
-When you get your hair cut, ask if you can keep the clippings.  I know this sounds weird, but just sprinkle them around your garden and your scent will keep most animals away.  This works great for deer.  

-Someone else mentioned chicken wire.  Make a fence around your garden that they cannot climb or go through.  

Hope this helps
