The first frost has already come. The tomato plants are brown. The cucumbers are wilted and laying everywhere, but you hate to clean it all up because you know all that freshly cleared dirt is going to be used as the neighborhood litter box.
I have a few suggestions that have worked for me to keep all those cats at bay.
The first involves fencing material rolled out over the garden box. It can be held in place by simply placing an old board or two to hold it down. It is much to uncomfortable for them to walk on and they tend to go elsewhere. In the spring, you can leave the fencing in place- depending on what you are growing.

Like many inspired ideas, the notion to live for a year according to the Bible's instructions for women came to writer Rachel Held Evans while she was taking a shower. "I was thinking about the book 'The Year of Living Biblically' [by male journalist A. J. Jacobs] and how different it would be if a woman had written it," the Tennessee native tells Shine. She embarked on twelve-month radical experiment to explore the Bible's rules for women-from not cutting her hair to calling her husband 'master'-and wrote about in on her popular blog. A book about her experiences, 'A Year of Biblical Womanhood' is being released at the end of October.
Evans was raised an Evangelical Christian and says within that community there is a lot of pressure for women to live according to the Bible. However, the way she sees it, many of the rules that are espoused by church leaders or in articles are "bullet points" that force women to beRead More »from Rachel Held Evans: A Woman’s Year of Living Biblically

Saturn in Scorpio: Challenging Inner Changes AheadRead More »from Saturn in Scorpio: Challenging Inner Changes Ahead
After two-and-a-half years of putting you through the relationship ringer, cosmic taskmaster Saturn has left Libra to take up residence in the dark waters of Scorpio. Between now and mid-2015, secrets, emotional courage, and resourcefulness are likely to emerge as crucial themes in your life.
This karmic phase brings up issues related to money, power, sexuality, and fear of change. It's about shedding old skin in order to make room for the new -- an absolute, head-to-toe, psyche-to-soul transformation, and there won't be anything light or easy about it.
Looking for an overview of your life as it unfolds? Discover how you evolve as an individual with your progressed chart by trying a free sample Planetary Influence Profile!

Carly’s first tip: Stock up your fridge. A stocked refrigerator means it takes longer for the fridge to heat up which means it will take less time for it to cool down. Food will stay colder longer, and require less electricity. Easy breezy.
