Raised Beds and Hoop Houses

This raised bed is waiting for it's hoops still, first I need to turn the soil and then plant it with lettuce, chard, and other salad nummies.

Tomorrow I'll add the mesh and then the plastic to the hoops.  The mesh is for later in the season to keep the critters out, the mesh I use is a half inch square plastic netting.

The boards are covering my leek trenches.

Awesome blog! I like the hoops with mesh and plastic. I've been wondering how to keep the darn ground hogs out of my garden. Thanks :)

Put plastic mesh or even metal hardware cloth down, I hear this works pretty well.
