The winter hibernation that took over the garden seems a world away now. The raised beds are now being attacked from all angles: from below the White Grubs, then on the surface the Cutworms, and today three grasshoppers were spotted flying in the matter of an hour. Just as we thought it could not get any worse, the dogs decided to help us out and deposit their own version of manure in the raised beds. The squashed seedlings and "presents" that were left sent me into a tailspin. Luckily, Josh came to the rescue. One Home Depot mission later, we had this beautiful garden fencing; which also acts as a support to the shade devices. Maybe, years from now, I will actually be one step ahead of all these creatures - heck anything would be better then 20 steps behind.
