My gardens did well for the first few years but when the groundhogs and rabbits found the free food they sent out invitations and before long them garden was in ruins. And it’s important to put up a good fence. My one fence was ok but I had a ground hog that was smarter than me and got in the garden. When I startled him he forgot how he got in and both of us had a scary moment. Cornered groundhogs will get an attitude!
