My squash plants are sprouting happily in their pots. Must buy more netting because soon I shall have to transplant some at least to a bed. Should google as to whether one can keep squash plants in pots on a table (in the only sun my garden gets.) They spread so much, I rather doubt it. But the bees need to get at the flowers, if and when, and for that one can't have double netting.
I think that what clawed through the single netting to dig in the swimming pool garden was perhaps a cat, or kitten. There was nothing growing where the creature dug, hence not squirrel. And what else would dig?
