How to Protect Herbs and Vegetables from Garden Pests

Casa Quickie: Hang Veggies and Herbs High

Last year, unwelcome pests in my garden wreaked havoc on my herbs and veggies. My green thumb takes over as soon as Spring arrives, and this year I've been looking for a noninvasive solution for having fresh cuts in my backyard without enticing hungry animals to have the first taste. Better Homes & Gardens suggests planting herbs and small vegetables in hanging planters to save on ground space, but I think it may be the perfect solution for a growing pest problem too. Not only is putting the goods out of reach visually appealing, it also leaves the delicious plantings safe and sound high above the ground. If, like me, you decide to hang your small varieties, just be sure you water them frequently as hanging planters and baskets tend to dry out faster than earth-grown plants.
