This week for spring break I’ve been spending a ton of time working on my vegetable garden trying to get everything done before wedding season starts next week and I no longer have time to do anything with it! All that work, made me realize that I haven’t talked about my garden on the blog in forever! So today I’m going to talk about the biggest difference in my garden this week… a fence! It’s nothing fancy or permanent. It’s just a thick plastic netting held in place by garden stakes. If I love it I might (far in the future) replace it with a better looking, real fence. But for now I’m just testing it out. I haven’t had too many problems with the deer since I put up the fence in the side yard so thankfully this fence doesn’t have to keep them out. And really it won’t do anything for the raccoons, squirrels or birds since they can just climb a fence. I hope it helps keep the bunnies and groundhogs out, but somehow I doubt it. Mostly I put it up to keep the chickens out. In the fall and winter I love having the chickens in there scratching up the weeds and bugs, but when I have seeds and baby plants in the ground the chickens are just destructive. They love to dig holes and eat seedlings. And if I let them in they would just kill most everything! Hence the fence to keep them out. So when they are running around the yard, I don’t have to keep chasing them out of my garden. I hope we have a fabulous growing season this year and that all my plants make me a ton of food! It’s still a work in progress, but I’m learning 🙂 I can’t wait to share more as things start to grow!
