Raccoons destroying my garden. Help!
This happens at least twice a year. I just set out transplants of broccoli, beets and lettuce as well as seeds of fava beans, mesclun, carrots and spinach into my three raised beds. The next night the marauders came and destroyed all my hard work. Raccoons! They dug all three beds up, throwing transplants all over the yard. It had rained the night before and I assume they were after the grubs and worms that come to the surface. Very very frustrating, especially since this seems to happen at least twice a year or more. I'm in southern CA in a suburban area. Is there anyone out there that is dealing with this kind of situation? How do you deal with these guys??? Help!
