We found someone getting rid of some wire fencing (looks like chicken wire possibly?), so I snatched it up to use for all my beans and peas to climb up! We took some tree limbs that my husband had cut when trimming a tree in our yard, and attached the fence with some extra wire. Click picture to enlarge. Cost of that project was FREE!
And look at my little peas venturing forth!
And on a distressing note, it looks like something is enjoying nibbling at my bell pepper plants. I have no idea what it is, or what I should do about it. I’m calling out to all you gardeners! What should I do to ward off whatever this is? I look forward to hearing all your tips about keeping bugs and rodents away from the garden (without using toxic chemicals). I’d like to do a post later on what to do for protecting our gardens, so I can’t wait to hear all of the great advice!
