Daniel, have you used the 7-foot high plastic netting to keep deer out? Also, have you tried electric fencing?
I don't have a vegetable garden yet, here at Laura's, except what is growing in the greenhouse. The seeds sprout very quickly, grow fast and we will have a spinach feed very soon.
I plan to have raised vegetable beds next summer.
I'm againin'. Garden cleanup, that is. Dug up some nice carrots and parsnips. Anybody else love parsnips like I do? Sun dried a mess of banana peppers. Next on the agenda is to dig up sweet potatoes. My red raspberries perked up after one and a half inches of rain two weeks ago. They're running out my ears. I've already made 3 gallons of raspberry wine. One more garden thing: I had my first concord grapes this week. Waited 3 years. Seedy, but tasty.
I actually worked in the garden yesterday, cleaning up a major portion of corn stalks, vines, and weeds. I also froze a large batch of white peaches.
Happy Autumnal Equinox!
Hi Kathy. How often is the internet unavailable where you're at?
It's been dry here most of the summer, as usual. Last week, I did get 1.73 inches of rain over several days.
Unlike most of the rest of you, this summer has not been very hot this year. There has even been a couple of cold spells, so my watermelon are not doing too well.
I picked one before the tendril dried just as a test because that vine had 5 large ones growing, so it was no loss. In fact, I think I read that they will ripen faster if there are not too many on the vine. It was only starting to turn pink.
A couple of days ago, I picked one from another plant. It's tendril had dried, but even though it tasted good, I don't think it was completely ripe. Well, the weather is predicted to be in the 80s for the next week. Maybe I'll get some more.
Good looking picture of Battleground Daniel.
I haven't read any of you blog for a while because I only get to the library to access the internet 3 days a week, plus, I only spend 2 hours each time because the seats are uncomfortable, and the tables are too high. I'm not commenting on AN as much for the same reason.
I tried commenting on your blog before, but it seemed too hard to do, so I didn't do it.
Well, big surprise--I got 1.7" of rain two nights ago! Man, did we need it. Sorry it missed you, Kathy.
Daniel, I do follow and occassionally comment on your garden blog. Wondering if you receive my comments. I'll check later, and it'll say "no comments posted". But be assured, I enjoy following your reports, especially the photos. Like I always say, they make me envious.
And here it turned light half an hour ago.
