So there is one of my boxes before I worked it into the remaining mix. I was 6 inches low on this one. There's a bunch of dainty ground cover around that box. I am torn about removing it. One, it has such pretty flowers that the bees and butterflies are always visiting - that's good! Plus, I like the way it looks. On the other hand, I read that "weeds" around the boxes encourage bad insects to nest. Good insects, bad insects.... they both like the same spot. What to do, what to do.The corn is going in this box. I hope the netting will keep the raccoons out. If it doesn't I'll go up another 3ft around it and will have to figure out some way to actually access the garden myself LOL. It's slightly floppy plastic netting so that they can't get a good climb on it. DH says they'll probably just chew through it. I hope not! Maybe if I toss some squirrel food (mostly corn) out behind the fence they'll just happily eat that. haha!
Alrighty, I'm off to get things done!
