Wire Covered Wicking Beds – or chook proofing part 2

Opponents?  Me vs. the Chickens. 

The Battleground?  The vegetable gardens

Winner of Round Two?  ME! 

It is hard to see it in these photos (dang cloudy days…)  but I have covered the beds in 5cm netting wire.  As the wire naturally wants to curl back up, it is easy to cut lengths and loop it over the width of a bed.  Since doing this a week ago, it appears the girls can no longer access the gardens for a digging frenzy.  Oh yeah!

Now what to do once the tomatoes grow higher than the wire cover?  Maybe more of these?
