Garden

Recommended Posts

gundy89

Need some ideas, I'm kinda at a loss right now. I have a 2 year old lab and a vegetable garden. The garden has waist high wicker fence around it. I cannot keep her away from my pepper and tomato plants. She's jumping the fence and plucking the tomatos and peppers right of off the plants. Until now, she left the plant alone. Now she has pulled one up and eaten it. So now, after all the stupid work in the garden, I'll get no peppers or tomatos. I still have beens, peas, and vines left. I was hoping that someone would have an idea of keeping her out. I'm going to have to invest in a electric fence, but would love a short term solution. Thanks guys.

Either a taller fence or the e-fence.

I had to put up a 4' fence around ours....

BLACKJACK

I have a garden and I tell them to stay the he!! out!!! And then I enforce it, when I'm tilling and planting their boundary is the edge of the black dirt, when I'm weeding or picking beans, even if I toss them a few beans, their boundary is the edge of the black dirt. Then you need to keep a watch out the window and enforce it. Idealy you'll catch them in the act but even if you find a half eaten tomatoe, make a big deal out of it, march over to the garden and make a production out of it, let them know that they're not supposed to be in the garden.

My dogs only get a couple hours of freetime a day, if your dog is locked up in your back yard with the garden, then its probablys a boredom factor.

Last resort, put up an electric fence. Dogs don't like electricity!

I think the answer is the same if the dog started opening cupboards and eating food in the kitchen. What about if the dog starts eating the garbage?

You teach them no and enforce it. If you can't let the dog out alone than you need to monitor the dog until you can trust him. No means no.

If you don't want to babysit the dog, then buy another section of 4ft fencing and attach it to the top of the existing fence.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.

      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.
