A barrier to keep those crazy soccer playing border collies from breaking off all the stems.
These dahlias are doing amazingly well, thank you very much, despite the mass of slugs on other parts of the property.
Until Luna came along that is.
Yes, a few of the plants have taken a beating, but the since the fence is up now, they should be okay.
And the peas, which were growing up a piece of that same sturdy wire that we put up to keep the coyotes out, are now all wrapped in electronet. The pea shoots were reaching well above the 4 ft wire, we ran the electronet down one side of the shoots, and then the other side, above the existing wire, and then around both sides at the bottom. The pea plants have never been so much under control. No more stems flopping over this year!
And in another week or so we will be eating peas, and we have broccoli too:)
I was feeling pretty discouraged about the vegetable garden, but I feel that things are finally looking up.
Or maybe not. I dug up potatoes tonight and came across a whole bunch that have been gnawed on by voles
