I hope you're soon back in tip top shape. I agree about the hardware cloth...it's pretty "salty" but at least you know it will last forever, unlike netting that has to be replaced fairly often.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Actually, the netting was very durable, but not like hardware cloth. The problem with the netting is I kept getting tangled up in it. Also I would have to remove it, and it was always getting caught on everything, it just aggravated me using it. Too, If a squirrel really wanted in it could easily chew through the nylon netting, so I felt more secure about the plants. Of course if a squirrel really wants into something...he is going to get in sooner or later.

Another thing I don't like about netting is that birds can get trapped in it. I used it to cover my strawberries one year and found a poor dead robin tangled in it. That gave me nightmares. Never again.
