Hey there quiltygirl, I have squirrels, raccoons, skunks, deer, feral cats, and neighborhood hounds that rummage and tramp through my little yard, but none have disturbed the Totes . . . YET! I do add companion plants to the Totes (or around them) and some repel 4-legged critters as much as the bugs, so I don't have conclusive evidence the Totes have anything to do with the critters leaving them alone. I also set the Totes in groups for support and they're not easily knocked, or blown, over (I hope that makes sense). I will pay more attention this year since you've peaked my curiosity!
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
Have a good garden season,
We have some roofing felt that is like the weed barrier fabric. I will need to test to see if it drains. It is dirty in a roll outside, so I would be hesitant to use my good sewing machine to sew it, lol.
When we buy grain or alfalfa pellets for our horses, they come in plastic lined paper bags. Aren't feed sacks fabric? Is that from chicken feed? Hmmm, clothing? Sheets might be good because of the tight weave.
I don't buy feed anymore, but others have stated their feed comes in burlap sacks and plastic-coated woven thread (or a plastic mesh) bags . . . don't know what kind of critter the feed was for. Clothes, like old jeans, polyester knits (suggestion made in another thread), or any heavy man-made clothing fabric, should work for the purpose. Check around to see what you might utilize!
