Giving 2009 another try

Giving 2009 another try

Hello all. Last year I planted a few things, sunflowers, cilantro and tomatoes. I am in zone 8b (Austin, TX) and my property backs up to a city park that has many animals. The deer seem to be the issue. Everything I planted last year was eaten. Squirrels and armadillo have also snacked on my stuff. :( I would like to give gardening another whack this year. There is a 6' fence separating my yard form the neighbors. I was thinking of making some sort of enclosure and making a 6' x 6' or so little garden for tomatoes, cilantro, basil, squash and cabbage. Does anyone have anywhere to direct me on an easy way to enclose a garden to keep out the deer, and some suggestions on what and when to plant. This area will pretty much have full sun. EDIT: I found this link online to build a "greenhouse of sorts". What are your opinions on this structure for keeping out pests and also, I am wondering how I can create something like this that will allow me access. Since I would be using it more for pest control than a little sauna for my garden. Here is the link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Build_an_Easy_5_x_5_Home_Greenhouse_for_under_25/?&sort=NEWEST&limit=50&offset=50 TIA for any advice. Tracy
