Nope. That's not a spelling mistake this time.
And it's more like oh deer, rabbits, squirrels and birds.
Some years the wildlife has absolutely ravaged my gardens.
Not only eating all the bounty but stomping (deer again!) all over what's left of my plants.
Sob story! I can't take it any more. Time to take action.
But my blueberries are precious. If left unattended, the birds will peck away at every last one.
Don't they know there's a convenient full service bird feeder just 30 feet away?
Squirrels and rabbit nibble at my crops and leave the rest! What nerve. You should see what they did to my tomatoes one year.
Netting. It's the wave of the future.
So today, Tom and I are going to tell you how we netted our blueberries to protect them from the wildlife in our yard.
Although our focus is berries, you can do this with your tomatoes, squash, cucumbers or whatever plants your are protecting in your yard!
