Your garden looks great ! I see you have a special dog bred for getting those burrowing animals that would be happy to eat your garden to the surface :thumbs:

An update, here is the garden as of June 19, also a shot of the water wagon and the fertilizer dose-a-tron set up. The dose-a-tron was only used to give the corn an infusion, as it wasn't doing as well as I wanted, it has made all the difference , darkened up and started growing nicely.

Looks like you are trying to catch some of the larger pests that are getting into the garden. Maybe time to get the fence charger out & put some wire up.

that trap was set very early on in the season and caught a huge rabbit. Then I sat one evening with my .17 HMR and finished off the rest ;-) got 2 rabbits and a woodchuck with in a half hour time span.

An organic kelp type stuff we get from our local farm coop that they use in their organic greenhouses. The stuff works good. I think it is an equivalent to commercial 20-20-20. If that bucket the filter is on ever broke.... That grass would need to be cut every day lol.

The problem animals for gardens here are raccoons & deer. That is when a hot wire fence comes in handy.

Had to remove the deck frame from my LGT 165 so I had better clearance for the corn, and commenced to hill it for the last time . It will only get watered if needed and a last side dress when it tassels. This I do by hand with my Earth way seeder with fertilizer attachment .
