kale and cukes eaten!
I have a veggie garden with a 6 ft chain link fence around it. Also, fencing material buried underground, 2 ft wide around the perimeter of the fence, to discourage burrowing under it. And yet....I went out there this morning and my kale has been gobbled up, along with some serious munching on my cucumber plants. I do have a woodchuck problem, they've been eating my flowers up, and I even saw one up on my 2nd story deck, eating all my potted petunias. Is it too much to think that they could climb a 6 foot fence to get to the veggie plants? My sister saw one climb her 4 ft fence, so if they can climb 4 ft, why not 6? Husband thinks its a squirrel or a chipmunk, do they eat veggie plants? I am not sure what to do at this point. Because its a veggie garden, I can't spray anything that isn't truly organic in nature. I thought maybe if I sprinkled dried blood meal about the garden, that might help? My husband is ready to put a chain link roof on top, on the chance that critters are climbing over the fence. This is really getting ridiculous, between the woodchucks and the deer, so far I've had my petunias, zinnias, cosmos, hostas and daylilies gobbled up and now this, I have just about had it. Suggestions would be most appreciated!
