How do you protect your planted and germinating and growing seeds and seedlings from hungry little thieves who come to visit under the moon? I saw digging in my beds where I had planted seeds about 3-4 weeks later just as things were starting to come up. I guess it could have been birds but I suspect a mouse. I am thinking of different strategies to deter him or her, like starting my seeds indoors or maybe covering my outdoor raised beds with some mesh until the babies get a few inches old. I would welcome any pointers or experiences. Thank you.
