So yesterday, we get home from church only to find two more mounds where the moles came back up after the mowed the lawn the day before. We have these new gas bombs that you thrown down the hole and cover up.  We will see if they worked.  Deer decided to start chewing on my cauliflower and broccoli plants so up went the black net horse fence around my raised garden.  planted carrots and beans yesterday.  Peas are up 6 inches now.  So excited the weather seems to be so much more cooperative this year.

OUr raised beds are about 2 foot high which makes our fencing about 9 foot high.  I do not know why the deer don't just jump it at her place but it has something to do with the color.  They don't see it before they run into it.  This scares them and then they will not try again.

either rabbits or deer.  We have found that putting the black net fencing around the garden deters both and it is easy to move when weeding and harvesting. I actually think it is called deer fence not horse fence.  We bought it at the feed store.  We put it up with plant stakes on our raised bed.  Here is a picture from my sister in law in california that shows what it looks like at her place.

my daughter planted cabbage plants one day and they were literally gone the next.  not a trace to be found.   someone had a nice little salad I guess.
