My husband and I were taking full advantage of the beautiful 66 degree weather today by protecting our future veggie babies from another vole invasion. We decided to empty our raised beds and place a hefty sheet of hardware mesh at the bottom… those voles don't have a chance.
The first bed was a cinch… no plants, no problem. I had a couple asparagus plants in the other… ummm… problem. I must have done something right last season, because one short year transformed a tiny asparagus plant into this gorgeous fern bush with pencil-thick roots. It took me over an hour to dig out this, obviously established, beauty, but we did it!!
Are you working in the garden this week?
