Protecting crops from the birds and squirrels

March 14, 2011 | By | Comments (2)

No more messing around. I’m not going to risk the same damage to the last round of cool-season greens that befell the fall crops. No way, not gonna do it.

I have a ton of babies in the ground — all the seedlings from the Japanese spring garden, plus a few new trial crops from Cook’s Garden. Purple Pak Choi, anyone??

Bird netting is just about my least favorite medium to work with. It catches on everything! But I took one for the team and properly protected everything I’ve got growing.

Take that, squirrels and birds. We should be having nibble-free produce in no time.

    Would the squirrels be able to chew through the netting or is it a tougher material?
