YES! You read correctly
We have had to resort to putting one of the 3ft x 12ft raised beds in Jail to protect the vegetables from deer, rabbits and squirrels. Photos below. Our next bed will be the 5ft by 24ft raised bed with the green beans in it
The "jail walls" are pvc covered with chicken wire and 6 feet tall.
I have HAD ENOUGH with the critters! lol
Eventually every bed of the 15 will have jail walls- 1 down 14 to go- it is VERY expensive to make these jail cells! But as expensive in time and work and loss of crops too!
How do you like the gravel paths? We are so thrilled with them!! 19 ton of gravel down so far with about 6 ton more to go to finish.
In case you are wondering on the last photo the yellow cup is covered with sticky and is there catching bugs- works great! but I think I need green ones to try to catch japanese beetles- they are here and they are the other pest I want to annihilate!!!! So I take a gallon can add 1 cup bleach and a squirt of dawn dish soap and 1/2 can of water and pick the dratted things off my plants multiple times a day.
We have more rain- we were JUST drying out but at least these rains aren't 7 inches in 3 hour kind and I really don't have to water anything this week so far........ so that is a blessing in disguise
I hope you are doing well - thanks for stopping in!
