Since I live in a relatively urban area, we don't get a whole lot of large garden pests. Sure, we get the occasional coyote and bear that has wandered off the Cascade corridor, but they usually don't stop for snacks in the backyard.
Raccoons are about the only problem around here (besides those damn Siamese cats), but they stick to the garbage cans rather than bothering with actual food plants, probably because the garbage and food waste bins are far more productive than picking off a few berries here and there.
I'm always fascinated by all the trouble people go through in order to keep animal pests from eating their edible plants. Even the birds around here don't bother me or my blueberry bushes and cherry trees. Perhaps there's just too much native vegetation to compete with it or they just don't bother since there's a p-patch about a block away from my house (as the crow flies).
So, tell me. Amuse me, if you will. What animals do you fight with for your hard-earned food crops and what do you do to you try to keep them out garden?
