Love My Dog - Love My Garden

Posted by @kytnbabe on
Boomer, my one-year-old German Shepherd dog, is always looking for work when he's outside. Unfortunately, he often likes to dig through one of my planters during the winter. By spring I realized I'd have to have a barrier on them to be able to plant flowers.

We have rolls of cattle fencing taken up so the fields can be row cropped. This fencing has worked well for tomato cages and other gardening items. To put it to another use, I cut off a length and bent it over my planters after amending the soil and transplanting volunteer Petunia and Desert Moss Rose seedlings. I planted a variety of annuals. Boomer only pulled out one Sweet Potato Vine, which I replanted, and has not dug in the planters since then. Momma says my planters are prettier this year than ever!
