For our blueberry plants, a netting protection is mandatory. We use chicken wire for the bottom and the bird netting above. The improvement this year is the use of 3/4" PVC pipes as poles. The idea is I can extend the length of the poles easily if needed.
For our main garden, this is a wild card. It was not intended to be like this. You think we have a Black-eyed Susan problem ? You should see our collection of self-seeded bi-color dwarf marigolds.
And to spice up the game with the squirrels who like to play in our apples trees, I have a surprise for them : Cayenne pepper. More on this later.
