Woodchucks can be destructive in the garden and can also be dangerous around people. They are wild animals, unpredictable, and can inflict serious bites. You may want to contact your local animal control about the woodchucks. In the meantime here is more information about them, including the specifications for a fence to keep them out of a garden area.

Many vegetables can be direct seeded in the garden, but you might want to purchase or raise your own tomato transplants. Here are some pointers on how to do that.


Enjoy your vegetable garden this summer!
