  • Netting A Hedge

    This one's for you Hershell. Thanks!

    We shall see if the world's nastiest birds figure it out. They always do.
    I feel like Wyle E. Coyote going against the Roadrunner. Beep! Beep!

      I'm liking the netting indeed. I (knock on wood) have yet to have bird issues. Yet as the trees grow and actually become tree size. .. lol. I'm sure the birds will start to perch in them, once that happens, the figs will be in jeopardy. Until then, I'll be happy to only deal with hail.

        Thankfully no. Robbinsand crows are usually the most common Grackles come through for a couple months and do a lot of damage. Thankfully that are usually gone before most fruit starts to ripen.

      Hey Frank,
      I haven't seen an update video on your trees. I seen the one from 2013 on youtube (a few times lol) but didn't know if you quit putting them on youtube or just haven't done a recent update video.

      Strong work. You know I saw the oddest thing this morning. There are always birds flying inside Home Despot but today one grabbed a pair of scissors and 4 others picked up a display chainsaw and they all started flying south.
