|These plants were laying all over the top of the soil and some buried too.|
|So much for it looking artistic, at this point I only hope it work.|
As I was starting the barrier redo I noticed soil that had been heaved up. "You have got to be kidding MOLES TOO!?!" I was shouting at them now. I'm sure the neighbors, who were in their back yard appreciated all my vows to destroy these vermin but I really didn't car at the time.
|Can you relate?|
Besides the need to vent, the reason I'm even sharing this is because we thought we had the moles licked when we installed hardware cloth at the bottom of our boxes but I guess not. The sneaky buggers have somehow found how to get past it! The mole managed to find his way into into 3 out of our 4 boxes. I literally wanted to cry
|NO not my special leaks! Yer gonna die!|
|The ground heaved and yup...that's a hole all right.|
The only thing I can figure happened is that the tunnels made by the mole for the last couple of years have somehow allowed the wire mesh to push down enough to where he can sneak in. (Note to self...next time staple it to the sides of the box.)
Well...thanks for the ear and I hope this bit of mental processing will somehow help you in your own gardening problems.
