I would suggest an electric fence.

2000 sq ft is about 1/25th of an acre.

While you might be able to experiment with plots this small - if they are any good at all, they'll be ate to the ground so quick - its tough tolearn much from them.

Maybe try an exclusion cage like a 3ft x 2ft box. At least you'll knowhow well the plot would have grown if not browsed down.
