My dad and I built a fence to keep out the bunnies and deer that run freely across the farm. We used chicken wire and dug several steel posts into the ground and secured nearly three rolls of the wire around the garden. Then, my dad and I made a little gate with a livestock fence.
I only made it home to tend my garden a half-dozen times last year, and because of that a few weeds and pests did invade it. It wasn't the prettiest garden in the world, but the bounty of food it produced—with very little upkeep and no chemicals—was phenomenal. I can't wait to try it again this year!
