Ha! *You people are slipping and I even posted photos of my handiwork showing the proximity of the stakes to the bog edge *:)
My husband took one look at what I had done and started laughing. He asked one simple question, "How did I intend to care for the plants once the chicken wire was up?" *Hmmm... the stakes are about a foot from the edge and there would have been no place for me to kneel down and weed let alone get in there to water them. *All of the stakes need to get pulled out of the ground and backed up at least a foot from where I currently have them placed. *Ugh! *
Hello BCK, thanks for that link. I was thinking more along the lines of actual fruit tree bird netting so it would drape over the top. *Your type may actually work better if I cut it out and lay it on top of the stakes. Seems to me that if a bird lands on a more rigid form of netting that it is less likely to get all tangled up. *Thanks again for the links. *
Hello Jerry, One question for you that I never considered. *If I do try to maintain a few CPs inside, do I need to start buying gut loaded crickets or fruit flies? *If so, I may need to revisit this as I am thinking I would NOT be interested in having fruit flies flying around the house with the holidays around the corner. *Stray crickets would be eaten by my indoor cats but the fruit flies would be another story.
