Hedgehog Watch!!!

Yes,he's moved. Some of the food has gone, so maybe he had just got up too early and then fancied another doze. I know how he feels.

Never planted veggies or fruits - need advice

Lots of questions here first. 

New York can be very hot in summer. Are you exposed to many animals,deer etc.? Why do you need to fence it?

What is the soil under the decking like.?  Can you not plant straight into the soil.? Fences will shade what is a  very small area. You may have room for a few tomatoes and eggplant bushes ,but not much else. You will need to remove the decking,I think it will just cause problems. Or you could grow in large pots stood on the decking, but you will need to spend more time watering pots than if you grow into the soil. In such a small space I wouldn't bother with onions. A courgette(zucchini) plant would take up a quarter of that space and be a better option.

Repot and split when the roots fill the pot.  make sure each section has a" nose " or growing point.

I agree with hogweed. Too much emotion, nice garden, would have liked to see more of the plants in the devon seaside garden.

A little hedgehog ambled across the patio about 8'45 then he stopped and hasn't moved for two hours. I've put a plate of puppy food chum out and some water. Bit worried. I expected him to amble off by now.

The slugs bossed my echinaceas. I saved the standard purple ones, but all the fancy colours were grazed as fast as they came through.
