Barbara, over the years, I've tried all kinds of home-made sprays. They've never worked, and it takes too much effort to brew them, especially garlic. I have both chicken wire and a type of field wire with narrow openings. I'm sure people think I'm growing fences and posts, not veggies!

King, onions are easy to grow (bulb starts, not seeds). When brown, I lay them out on my garage floor to dry for about 2 weeks, then store them in mesh bags.

First harvest of the year
Comment by king on May 22, 2014 at 10:10am
It's really big after 4 weeks and no hail here thankfully heavy rain for maybe ten min

Randall, I'm assuming you are using chicken wire as a barrier fence. Have you ever used companion planting, plants rabbits don't like with your veggies?  Maybe soap?

Yep, if a mastiff sits on your plant its pretty much squashed, no pun intended.  I guess it is just the enjoyable part of your gardening addiction. 

King, yeaaahhh! first sighting is always heartening isn't it?

I spent a good part of yesterday fencing the garden--no easy task for a 40'x60' size. Only half is "fenced".Now that my green beans are sprouting, I have to protect them, too.

King, you're a step ahead of me. I don't see carrots yet. Did you get hail from those storms? They missed me, thankfully.

Barbara, if my dog, a mastiff, sat on my flowers (which she does), that pretty much destroys them. I don't which is worse, the damage done by moles, or the holes dug by Molly to catch them!

Carrots finely I can see them

Randall, I have a 10 lb minature poodle who loves being with me when I garden. I first said, "no" to him getting into beds, then "no" don't pee on newly planted tree and perrenials. Discovered I was saying "no" far too much and making our gardening time not so much fun.  Yesterday I was watering and he came to help me and sat on very tiny little flower - I picked him up and told him he was a 'good boy'.  He loves to chase the only squirrel that comes to our yard, and I can only imagine the fun he would having chasing rabbits.  I empthasize with you and Sentient's problems with wildlife, and it sounds as if, whatever it is, has discerning tastebuds. :)
