Tiny Sprouts and Squirrel Hate

We've got quite an assortment here in our spring garden: garlic, onions, spinach, mesculun lettuces, Swiss chard, leeks, kale, carrots, peas and beets.  Our slightly modified version of the Square Foot Gardening techniques for soil preparation have really paid off - everything is looking quite healthy in our single 8x12' raised bed.  All vegetables have been started from seed except for the onions, and were planted just before Christmas.  The oak leaves are proving difficult to keep off the starts, and I've sworn to kill all the squirrels as soon as I can get my hands on a pellet gun.
