So...yesterday I spent several hours fixing all the spots they can get in by putting a 1/2 inch opening, plastic fence up, just around the bottom. I also adjusted the gate the dogs broke by cutting an inch off the width so the wiring would fit better.
By bedtime I hurt all over and was afraid I might hurt today, too. But I am OK!
So...my next project for this garden is to fill the beds with compost and top them off with wood chips. I was looking up the places to get compost on the internet today. There are now 11 places in So. California where you can go get it for free, as much as you can haul away. Go to smartgardenning.com, to the FACTS list. It is a PDF file.
I hope to cover my whole acre in compost at least 6 inches deep. But I will start with my gardens. Then the tree beds. I want to plant melons, and squash in the tree beds It will keep the soil moist around the trees and I can grow the vines up the trees for support. Plus, it will be easy to put a ring of fence around the bottom to keep the rabbits out.
I DECLARE WAR ON RABBITS!
