We made it to our new farm. No garden and lots of old fruit trees that need help. Have Clay soil and lots of deer. Deer walked up onto my porch and ate the leaves off the Raspberry starts I brought with me already. Sigh ~ ~ So should be interesting. Have not done much gardening in clay soil,, have dealt with sandy soil quite a bit. I remember seeing a set up in a old Countryside Mag.. where some folks had old large hoop house, and instead of using plastic, they used bird netting for the top,, and wire for the sides and the ground. That way creatures could not get into the garden. With Raised garden beds,,, might cost a bit, but maintaince once done right should not be much. Guess I had better be saving up my pennies for this coming spring. What does everyone else do to keep deer and other creatures out of your gardens?
