I'll make Nasi goreng with the leftover roast pork from yesterday in a while - real comfort food.   I've cooked the rice and it's cooling.

It'll work fine - just put the mats under the chicken wire and stretch the chicken wire across the top and fix it to the edges of the planter.  I found that using a stapler worked - by the time the staples rusted through it was usually time to replenish the compost and put some more plants in - and if they'd not rusted through they weren't difficult to remove and re-do.
