Cagey Cages

It is not a pretty solution, but thus far the woodchuck (thank you Jean, he has been spotted and I believe you called it!) has been outcaged by our “cages.”  The dahlias survived the week we were away in relative security stuffed in their cages.The cucumbers and squash and marigolds needed protection from Woody…

The idea of cages for the dahlias was expanded for the other raised beds to enclose all 4 x 8 feet.

We can only hope that we have stumped old Woody and that he will move on to other pastures!

It is not pretty but it is our last ditch effort to have some vegetables this year….

I’ve been told that hanging white plastic grocery bags in the garden disturbs some animals as the bags  float in the breeze making a soft rustling sound unfamiliar enough to discourage them from venturing forth.  I’ll give it a try!

In the meantime, there is much to enjoy that Woody has not discovered:

  1. Woody’s bad relatives have an RV on the back lawn over here!


  2. I have a collection of many different varieties of hydrangeas, but none are mixed with astilbes. Yours are lovely.
