We built our garden beds last month and the dogs must have gotten confused because they heard “beds” and instantly started sleeping in them. Not such a big deal if it’s just dirt (which it was for quite a while). Pretty big deal if they are trampling all over our new vegetable plants.
I really didn’t want to put a fence around the beds and it was virtually impossible to catch the dogs in action. (Or I should say, “inaction.”) I had no idea how I was going to protect my sweet little plants…until I came upon a picture in my Flickr stream!
Absolutely brilliant and it just so happens, I had a jumbo pack for forks in my pantry. I felt kinda bad at first for using clear forks but Zefram and Clover haven’t even tried to step foot in the beds for a week.
I think there just might be hope for my veggie garden yet!
PS: has anyone grown pineapple sage before? Absolutely amazing plant! It smells so delicious and pineapple-y that I keep on pinching it every time I pass. I have it a medium sized pot right now but I think I’m going to transplant it to the front where it’ll hopefully attract some hummingbirds. Mmm, pinapple sage tea! More recipes here.
