I've moved to a house from my 5th floor condo. I have a large deck and a small back yard. I was thinking that I'd do some raised beds instead of container gardening for some things.
Today, however, I watched in horror as the squirrels played on top of my containers, cavorting this way and that. (The movers just placed them on the deck; I'd not yet taken out last year's soil because I knew I was moving.)
I do not want my entire crop of tomatoes to go to a furry critter, whether they are in a raised bed or in a container.
I'd think that the raised bed might be easier to surround with fencing to keep them out, but maybe I'm deluded.
Does one way have a better chance of me getting some of my crop than another?
