Well the garden did very well this year. Tomatoes,beans, everything ripened early and we are still picking. Last year the grapes were raided the night before picking by birds;almost every single grape gone. I suffered for that feast believe me...
This year we bought some netting and had better luck,here's a couple bowls my sweetie collected yesterday...

fabulous harvest Marty. My deer and rabbits did better than ever this year, devastated the daisies, hostas, pepper plants, larger tomato plants etc. The tomatos didn't like fencing around them so the yield was poor. Luckily they didn't touch the herbs. We tried sprays and everything. The only thing that did well were the cherry tomatos.

I have a simple fence,just 1" steel conduit pipe for posts with 4' wide by 1" mesh wire rolled out on the pipe framework. Took me no time at all to set up and will last for 20 years. At ground level I have landscape logs,and the wire fencing is nailed to that with slats. Only mice can get in,and they aren't even steeling enough lettuce to set a trap....and we have a lot of mice and voles. Birds are the only thieves we worry about,and the netting about August over our grapes took care of that. :D
