Gotcha. Well good luck. Be sure to share what has worked. I have some raccoon problems as well (a skunk also). I haven't gardened yet at my house because I'm not sure what to do with that.
I've got high hopes for the pepper. Used a shitload tho...hoping a combo of that, the soap and the seven dust I'm about to put on it does the trick.

I've planted late tomatoes (won't come in until mid-august) so I've got some major work to do still.

I'll keep ya posted :hi5:

yeah, but I don't have the means for that right now... :(
Dude go to lowes you can get like cheap chicken fencing for nothing. I think I got like 25 feet for about 4 bucks.

Now the stakes well those are a bit more expensive.

Would have never thought that would be useful for that.

Meh, trick dad taught me several years ago to keep dogs outta trash...same concept. every animal goes where they do based on scent, primarily. They start sniffing around the garden, get a shitload of pepper in their nose...and they're not so excited about it.

Cayenne would probably work too...can't imagine getting a nose-full of that.

well, the bigger problem is, it's not technically my garden. I'm living in a rental property, and my landlord lives about 50 ft from me...it's her garden. She just elected to only use half of it this time (it's a huge garden) so she said I could use as much of the other half as I wanted. Wouldn't feel right fencing it in.

Split the cost with the landlord?

thought about it, but she really doesn't seem too interested. idk how her shit is still growing. I never see her water it or but any sort of bug deterrent on it...most of it looks ok tho.

Kill her and take it for yourself.

I have my onions and tomatoes going indoors right now.

This off-season, I pooled stuff for my compost bin. My garage smelled awesome all winter. It was tea and coffee grinds, citrus, banana, and a few other peels mixed in with my starter(leaves, grass clippings, old pumpkins, and old charcoal). Two years ago I did a compost pile that smelt rancid after a month, but I got some really great tips from a farmer(like the old tea and coffee grinds) that really helped.

My parents had rotten luck with tomatoes the past summer. They also grow Cucumbers, zuchini, pumpkins.

How much space do they set aside for pumpkins? I tried pumpkins a long while back, and they suffocated most of my garden.
