Those giant metal pinwheels can't come soon enough. The moose have been tromping though the yard every day for the last week. We have to listen at the front door before we open it because sometimes they are right there! Though the moose haven't eaten much, they certainly don't help soil structure in the raised beds by compressing it. And plants don't care for having their crowns stepped on, even if they are ignored as a food source. My poor newly planted rhubarb! Almost a direct hit.
It has been unseasonably warm. Get those bulbs planted NOW. Planting bulbs is a pleasurable activity in this kind of weather. Miserable when it's cold. You've been warned.
