I am having one heck of a time with the gophers. The thought of all the hard work putting in a garden is overwhelming when I think about all the plants that get eaten by those darn things! I invision a container garden where I can grow what I want, when I want, but...some things have got to be impossible, right? Sweet potatoes - ? toms - yes leeks, chives, onions, etc - yes pees, beens, other viners - yes Ideally, I would love to take a bobcat, dig out where I garden, put in some sort of retaining wall, or seal, so the darn things can't get in, put the soil back and start over. I have the space, can get the containers, but with a big project like that, where would I start? We don't get enough rain to let them just go like a ground garden...containers seem to be an awful lot of work. See how I go back and forth? Someone slap me, and tell me I can do this, and have some ideas. Wouldn't a great big green house be nice???
