Building a berry cage in the vegetable garden.
To help protect our blueberries, strawberries, and others from birds, I built a fully fenced enclosure within our existing fenced veggie garden. As with many projects, the first step was a delivery of materials:
To maximize the useful space, I also added a new bed within the berry cage area:
Finally, replacing the exterior fencing wire:
That concludes this project. In retrospect, I wish I had used a narrower gauge wire, since small birds can still squeeze through. I didn’t want to use too small, that would prevent bees from entering, though. I might add a layer of chicken wire to solve this, though I’m not sure it’d be worth the cost and effort.
