Looks nice. Why did you lay the fencing over the top of the beds/under the straw?

Is the lattice fencing for ease of removing the straw mulch?

I have lots of squirrels digging everything they can find.
This was only a piece that was laying down that I just left there..
I'm needing to cover  just about all of my plantings, at least till they mature a bit.
I managed to get them off my bird feeders, now need to reduce the herd again as I did a few years ago.
All they are are destructive  critters with no purpose in my life.

Looks great jimmycee! I agree with you about the annoying and destructive habits of the squirrels.  No sooner did I get my sfg beds topped off and nicely raked and leveled, there they were digging holes. Evil or Very Mad

+1, Jimmycee!  They look great!

I have more trouble with chipmunks than squirrels.  One set up an apartment under a blueberry bush last year!  Till I put the plastic snakes out... Twisted Evil 

Jimmy, you might try that.....  I got them from Wally-world for $1 each.

Hi Jimmy, I'm with you on the critter solution.  The only way to go is population reduction. I have 2 cats being given to me this week and a new pellet gun on order.  Laughing

That snake idea sounds great to me, snakes run in our family...LOL...
2 sons collected, purchased and grew them.
One was a Burmese python that had a 4 X 8 foot cage in his bedroom.
Ate 3 rabbits and 2 chickens at one feeding once, (forced fed)
Grew to 12 feet and almost as round as a football.
He gave it back to the pet shop where he got it (thank goodness)
Extremely gentle it was, so it made a good pet...ha ha
One visitor to our home one day sat beside our terrarium, look over at it and asked ! is that a snake ?
When we told him yes, he bolted out of the house and wouldn't come back in...

Jimmy - Oh, my...  I like snakes, but don't have any.  Don't WANT any!

Bob - Mike had a student in a couple weeks ago that hunts squirrel & chipmunk.  Says the chippies taste sweeter than the squirrels...  ???

Jimmy, you must really like garlic and shallots. That bed looks fabulous! Well done!

The cats will do it, Bob. I have 1 cat and no  more squirrels, no rabbits, no chipmunks and no moles. The neighborhood has no moles either. They all end up here...on my front steps. She must think moles are my favorite food because when she first started going outside I was having such a problem with them, that I praised her highly every time she killed one and brought it to me. Now I get everyones moles. Rolling Eyes

I enjoy the plants more than I do the veggies, although I do love roasted garlic.
Wife keeps complaining when I eat what she bakes for me....once I start on it I can't stop.
Shallots ?? I don't know enough about them yet, however for what they cost at the store I'll have a whole bed of them, wife loves cookin with shallots, and me ??I love eatin what she's a cookin..

From the sound if it, jimmy, I doubt that she thinks she got a bad deal either. Smile

Jimmie
I am impressed by your shallots and onions.
I plant garlic in the fall and do quite well, but this year was my first to grow onions and shallots and they look terrible
I planted them from seed in January and then put them out in garden 
However you appear to plant yours like garlic, and they look better for it.  We are both in zone 5...
Your pictures are amazing, so much fun to see step by step beds

GWN
many thanks, as far as putting pictures together, I do it the way I would enjoy viewing them.
This is my very first crop of garlic in MM, I've always had fairly good results in soil, this year I am looking for giants, and tasty.
Shallots are my first altogether.
These onions I picked up from a local small town farm shop.
They must be local, possibly Amish onions as there are quite a few communities in the area.
Again, my first in MM..
