Garden update, May 2012

"Defend the perimeter" has become the watchword for the garden this year.

Double-fencing around the (replacement) Coreopsis after the first one tragically vanished.

A temporary cover for the carrots before a more permanent , sturdy defense is devised.

The spinach and lettuces are flanked by potted orange trees.  Predator in background.

A new bed along the side fence is completely enclosed by chicken wire.

As are the raised beds in front. The tomatoes are grateful.

And here is what happens when there is inadequate protection. 

 This plant lasted about two hours.

The canines cannot account for their whereabouts at the time of the incident.
