Its odd how people think.
I lived next to a woman who came from a big city environment.I guess she thought she was a farmer on her 40X120 foot lot.She started a garden,read books etc.
One day I saw her laying lengths of 1x6 lumber along the fence line and asked her was she making a raised bed. She said she didnt want the insects from my yard to come into her yard and eat the squash.

You gotta wonder about some people Blinking
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.
