Deer-proofing the raised beds!

Submitted by jimwcoleman

It was a picture-perfect day in the Seattle area ... lots of sunshine, then dark clouds, a bit of rain and hail, then sunshine ... and a repeat of that about twenty-two times.

During the dry parts of the day, it was a good day to get out and string the wire around the raised beds. I maintain a solar-powered electric fence around all the gardens during the gardening season and as this raised bed garden is brand new, I've been looking forward to wiring it.

I'm starting to put plants in the garden ... I have a lot of salad greens and peas in the beds so far, so it sure it time to start taking measures against the deer. They are plentiful this year - and they always seem to love my yard the most!
