This end of my vegetable garden is for extra hostas and perennials, and apparently, a few weeds too.
Today, as I went to check out the raspberry patch, I surprised a groundhog.
Well, we surprised each other really.
He was busy digging a new hole for himself, inside the electric fence.
This is a problem.
How will he get out now? How soon will he find the lettuce, beets and bok choy?
I unplugged the electric fence, hoping he would escape.
He wasn’t really afraid of me.
But when he did go inside his hole, I shovelled in the sand and dirt on top.
After a few times of repeatedly digging himself out, he seemed to get the message.
My husband saw him wander off into the field, so I plugged in the fence again, and filled in the hole again.
