I just wanted you guys to see what worked for me to prevent animals from eating my stuff.
They are all individually removable panels that lock on to the sides of the box.
All held in place with a bungee cord.
Any questions just let me know.

I had trouble with deer a few years back and here is what I had to do.

But this year I have rabbits in my garden and have both eaten several holes in the bottom of my deer mesh as well as burrowing under the fence.  Any ideas????

That is a really great idea Jeff. It is as attractive as it is useful!
Do I see small blocks of wood holding the bottoms in place?

That sure looks nice and neat.
I had problems with deer, planted 4x6 post's from the electric co's post removal dept.
Added proportional small tree trunks horizontally.
Then attached 4 ft hi and 2x4 square wire fence all around.
This was before SFG came into my life.
Now it's so grown up I can hardly get in...
All in all the only cost was the wire fence..

Hey, jimmy cee, now that is a mighty fine fence!  Creative, visually pleasing, and you can't beat the price.  Nonna

Yes they are small blocks on both sides.
I wasn't sure what to use so this was the simplest and least expensive.
I may change them out if I come up with something better.
Also the chicken wire I used for the panels may be changed to 1/2" welded wire to keep the cabbage butterflies out.

Jeff
Do you think the 1/2 inch wire would do the trick on the cabbage moths?
This was my first year with SFG, so I had no time to think about crop protection.

I think it will. I thought of 1/4" but that may block too much light.
They fly right through the 1" chicken wire.

I use tulle (like bridal netting) against the cabbage moths. It excludes bees so it can't be used on flowering plants that need pollinating. [unless you hand-pollinate everything!]

I was thinking about that but wasn't sure how it would hold up on the panels.

Gently lay it on and wrap around your frames, then secure with small black binder / paper clamps.  (I bought a package of colored ones!)  Just make sure all the seams are closed or the persistent moth will find a way in! My tulle made it through the 100+ degree summer in good shape and I will reuse next summer. I think some folks use large bolts of cheese cloth. I doubled the tulle for light sun protection.
