    we do a garden... we plant

    potatoes (yukon gold), cabbage (os cross), carrots, squash, onions, peas, spinach, celery, lettuce.

    and then we have a mini orchard, with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and apple trees. (fenced in becuase we have goats!)

    our cat never goes in there, he is either in the outside hunting, or inside.

    Put your coffee grounds in the dirt, they hate that. Try some cayenne pepper too. I think there's more, google it! :greengrin:

    I keep the ground wet. They hate scratching in wet soil. That, and I lay chicken wire on the ground before the plants come up. They don't like to dig through the fine wire.

    We have a garden every year-sometimes two gardens. We normally put all of the squash in one garden(zucchini, Butternut Squash), and then we put tomatoes and green beans in to can. We planted a lot of green beans last year-almost made it to where I hate them-but I like them better than store bought so I guess it was okay. We put in some egg plants. This year I think my mom's going to try some pole green beans. We also put peppers in to. Last year we had red chilli peppers, green bell peppers, and halipenyos(not spelled right-but I can't think of the correct spelling). We also put in pickling cucumbers sometimes.
