We have been busy planting in our new garden space but so have the chipmunks. We feed the birds. We have sunflowers for the cardinals and sparrows. Peanuts for the woodpeckers, nuthatches and sparrows. We have thistle for the finches and sparrows. We have a grape jelly feeder for the orioles and a hummingbird feeder. The birds tend to scatter seed and the chipmunks and squirrels love it. The chipmunks tend to bury clumps of sunflower seeds in our garden. At this time we have at least 5 clumps of blooming sunflowers. We pulled out lone plants or those which were not in suitable locations. All in all the chipmunks are better at planting flowers than we are.
