Has anyone tried making their own bird netting?  A rainy day project.
If you already have the twine, all it will cost is your time.

I just came across a netsite I saved from last year for birdnetting.
Grolock??  .32/sq ft.   I have nothing to compare that price
against--but it would be too much for me to spend--I figured it would be
$90-$100 for 25x25 to cover my dwarf cherry.  That's starting to be
expensive pie.


E&R Seed, garden supply catalogue, 
28' x 28' for 24.09, 2 or more @22.89; also lots of other sizes:
E&R Seed, 1356 E 200 S, Monroe, IN 46772, no phone. As of 05, Summerwood
Seed & Supply is now taking orders for E&R by phone 877-311-4443; fax
775-227-2811; email <benabeer at adamswells.com>; or web
www.seedgardensupply.com

Gemplers, 14' x 30' for 12.25 each, 10.95 if ordering 4 or more; also 7'
x 100' for 17.75/15.95
www.gemplers.com or 800-382-8473:

Probably more sources around but these are the ones I found in a hurry.

I don't know how the quality of the nettings compares; but the price
difference might be primarily in the companies; Gemplers is aiming
primarily at the commercial market (though they do take small orders)
and so often is cheaper than companies aiming at home gardeners, and E&R
runs cheaper than most people on most things they carry.

2 1/4" of rain here and still going --

-- Rivka; Finger Lakes NY, Zone 5 mostly
Fresh-market organic produce, small scale
