How to Keep the Critters Out of the Garden


The rabbits were eating my beans so I came up with an easy, inexpensive solution for covering the crop until it gets big enough an no longer tasty to the critters.

    If you want the perfect solution for keeping critters out of your garden check out www.gardencommander.com these last up to 20 years outside, won't rust like chicken wire and have a ton of uses. We have been using them on our Virginia farm for the past 8 years. We couldn't have a garden without them. They are great for raised beds (they have a 2'x4' base and heights up to 30Inches. You can line them down your garden row to cover a large area! A green product for sure, never need chemicals, animal friendly and last for a lifetime!
