This is great and the plants all look wonderful! I really want a greenhouse! So how exactly do the pesky bears get in? Is it when you open the vents on the sides? If so maybe you could make some sort of chicken wire/mesh covers to go over them when they're open? That should let the air continue to flow but keep out intruders Smiley.

bears will go anywhere if they set their minds to it-chickenwire or no chickenwire.

I am jealous of all the little greenie sprouts! I am in anchorage and am stuck with a pitiful 4 ft by 4 ft balcony. Nice!

That's so cool, teenage labor and all! They did a fabulous job!  I hope your crops come in great.  Be sure to take pics of the harvest.

It's funny, we have raccoons here in the suburbs and they can get into a bungied garbage can faster than I can, but they leave the garden alone.  I was born & raised in New York City, living in suburbia for a good long time.  We saw a bear once while hiking in Wyoming, and seriously, it was really hard for me not to panic and not pee in my pants at the same time, so you're a brave woman!  I spot a possum and it's a kodak moment!

Thanks, everybody, for the best wishes for my "babies".  So far, this summer, we have not had much sunshine but they are all still hanging in there and the only pests I've had to fight off as of yet have been my own cats.....which brings me to the bears....I've included a link (I hope that's alright) to a local newspaper story about the bears around here, it's a bit of a humorous story and events like this happen all the time, but it really only gives a slight view of how smart these animals really are.  Again, thank you for all the great feed-back, I appreciate it!
