Homemade Wattle Fence

Permaculture Principle #6- Produce no waste

I have armadillos again. A whole family of them, if the number of holes they dig all over the yard is any indication. Fortunately they tend to stick to the pathways and lawn since they can’t jump or even climb very well but they do get into the beds sometimes, especially when there’s disturbed soil.

So when I planted my spaghetti squash seeds I wanted to make sure the armadillos couldn’t get into them. I have kept the trimmed branches from my peach and plum trees- hopefully to make baskets with. So I took some of the branches and wove them into a simple fence.

Sorry for the crap photo. But look at my fence! I will be doing this more often. Use what you have.
