Cats

I have worked hard on my veg plot getting the soil right. How will I stop cats from digging up the seeds I plant out. It is soul destroying to see it.

    One of his tips is lightly burying teabags sprayed with muscle spray (as you probably know, it stinks)! I'm going to try this myself, and they're my own cats!image

    I use mesh grid, bought as a kit to make a compost heap but it was far too holey and airy so I now use each sheet to cover a section of raised bed when I've newly hoed and sowed.   Works a treat and lets the plantlets come up with no worries and is easy to ligt off when they're big enough to cope.

    Keeps the dogs off too and they have much bigger feet and grander digging ambitons in the case of the terrier.
