Best Critter Resistant Plants

When animals are starving they'll eat whatever's available in order to stay alive. In less dire situations, when choices are made, most animals have preferences. Some plants are just tastier than others.

So, your next question may be, what are the best critter resistant plants? Below is a list of not-so-tasty garden plants that we offer, available in spring or fall, that meet with less enthusiasm when the question "Yum, what's for dinner?" is asked.
