This is our first year having a large garden. We added goat/horse manure to the dirt. My neighbor tilled the garden 3-4 times with his tractor. We are located in North Central Wisconsin, zone 4. Those first plants seemed to have disappeared. Two weeks later along with purchasing new plants, putting a fence around the garden, and lining the only entrance with marigolds, I put new plants in. Half of the plants again have literally disappeared but there are no tracks in the garden. :no: Some of the plants are gone from the top but there is a plant in the dirt. Does anyone have any idea what this is? We are just learning but this is real frustrating. My husband is determined that we will have a garden this year so he ran me to the Mennonite stand again to purchase plants for the third time. I am real happy that they are real reasonably priced. They sure happy to see us coming this year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
