Last fall I very carefully cleaned out the garden and surrounding area of all leaves and dead vegetation that might provide cover from predators. There were dozens of vole holes. This spring...all the voles are gone, and I'm not seeing any vole damage so far. A great big 'thank you' to all the owls and hawks.
The deer fence was down in three places due to Hurricane Sandy, which dropped a tree the fence was attached to, and the February blizzard, which dropped 3 feet of snow and pulled the netting off the wire.
I've just added a "wish list" page to this blog. It should show up on the left margin.
