This is our little garden. We have 12 tomato plants, some zucchini, cucumber and pepper. I did plant green beans but either the rabbit or the woodchuck got to them. We put a fence up around 3/4 of the garden after that. I recently learned that if you want to keep woodchucks out of a certain area, all you need is a pail of water, 1C of vinegar and 1C of Dawn. Equal portions of the vinegar and Dawn and it has to be Dawn, not Palmolive, Joy, etc. Anyway, combine that and pour it around the area you want to keep them out of every 6 weeks. I'm told it works like a charm. The lady at the farm said she had put down some white stones as a border so she was doing the same area every time. Glad to know of something that works.

As you can see from the picture above, it is a store bag and duct tape for the sides. You really don't have to even stuff it with anything but I opted for some foam so they could have a little cushion from the rocks. I think if you put newspaper inside, the weight of the paper would cause the handles to lift up on the tape. Super light weight, practical, and quick to assemble. All 3 were made in 30 minutes.
