Vegetable gardens and (4 legged)pest management

maplesugar | Apr 14, 2009 05:14 PM

I'd like to start a bigger vegetable garden but because our house backs on to a natural area we have voles and richardson ground squirrels (aka Prairie Gophers) that have taken up residence in the yard. Last summer I had tomato plants and some herbs on the deck and they fared well... but there are only so many containers I can put on the deck before I run out of room. We have a pest control contract (covered bait traps).

My question is: can I attempt a traditional vegetable garden? Or will the four legged interlopers just eat it all?
