Welcome to Poland!  18 countries viewing our garden now :)

Deer fencing is installed!  

We have had a lot of problems with wildlife.  Sometimes you can see  a whole herd of deer in the field next to our garden, patiently waiting for us to finish what we are doing, waiting for us to leave. now. please.  I know the minute we are gone it is dinner time in the vegetable garden.  Our first crop of corn was doing just fine and then one morning it was just gone.  We have deer, rabbits, groundhogs and geese living in or next to the garden.

Extra small mesh to keep rabbits out.

The fencing and towers are gone.  Yeah.
