I remember reading a post about this late last year and I was wanting everyones opinion. My DH wants me to ask all of you chicken lovers out there if you have used hot wire to protect your vegetable garden. He knows 2 strands at least is needed. But at what height? What were the results? I know there is a high-low voltage but still? I'm not too keen on this idea and would worry about having fried chickens. MY idea is to take my cattle panels that I use to grow my pickling cukes on--make a big pen to surround my tomatoes and hoped that would work. I wouldn't mind them eating on mu cukes as there is always plenty of those. Will they eat any soft flesh veggie growing? beans, zukes? I want this in place when we start planting soon. Will be doing tators in a week or so. Suggestions please. Thanks!
