THIS is what is left of 18 romain lettuce and spinach plants I set out this past weekend. Not rabbits as the fence around the garden has always kept them out in the past. I think it's the [email protected] ground squirrel that lives in the wood pile in the back 40.

Our garden is several raised beds inside a wire fence, and the fence is buried 16 inches below ground level. It's a lot easier to grow in raised beds here in the southwest because the native soil is pretty poor and it takes less water. The hubby and I spent Sunday prepping the beds and putting in plants and seeds. Dang!

do i sense a tone of sarcasm? actually my catahoula stays on limb rat patrol, she munched one up yesterday that was trying to get into the pool. She's pretty slick for a dog, pretending to be sleeping but keepin an eye on those bushy tailed rats.

sounds like you've put some work into this garden just to let those little critters get a belly full. print this out and practice w/ your .22

try dog fur. it works best with bunnies, but may work with squirrels. my golden retiever sells it by the pound, but he doesn't ship out of state, sorry.
