Was working in my raised beds this afternoon and having a terrible time. Turned around one time and the new dog was sitting right smack in the middle of my English Pea bed. Turned around another time and she was digging in the bed I was working in (planted my potatoes today). Then one of the cats kept digging up the potato chunks as I planted them. SIGH...it was my dream to build a chicken run about four feet wide all the way around the garden with a chicken coop attached to the back of my potting shed. Hubby doesn't think this would look "pretty". It's going to take an act of congress to get him to put up the white picket fence he wants. Until then, how am I to keep the dogs and cats out of the garden? (The other four dogs have no interest in the garden beds, but I know all the cats are going to be a pain).
