Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

I added an electric fence to the top of the garden tower. It didn’t initially bother the raccoon. I also placed a copper cover over the compost tube connected to the electric fence. Movie recorded with an Arlo Pro security camera. That got the raccoon’s attention. Need to do the same for the other two garden towers.
