Pesky Pest Protection

BrassicaCageHere’s the first version of my Brassica Cage. It’s based on Brenda’s description from March’s Edible Gardens meeting – a frame of tennis balls from the pound shop and bamboo canes.

I didn’t go for the scaffold netting on ebay that Andy recommended in the end. It’s a lot cheaper but I wanted a width quite a bit greater than 2m to match the 4ft canes. So instead I splashed out on a roll of 3.6m Enviromesh which is just about ideal.

I’m looking forward to getting a decent helping of calabrese this year – ahead of the pigeons and the caterpillars for a change 😮
