Don, you have a beautiful garden!  Glad it has a chance to rest and recuperate, no weeds to pull, no maintenance needed for a while.  Then, back to happy gardening!

Here today it's an unusual but not unheard of 18 degrees.  We get a few days like this every winter.  Most of the time it's rainy and mild.  I need the gardening break but am anxious for the sap to flow and get out my grafting knife, and anxious for some fruit trees to come in the mail and get out the shovel to plant them.

My garden, July 30 and December 30.  Seed catalogs are already arriving.  Looking forward to another growing season.

It may be a new year starting today, but I'm still eating "last year's" garden goodies. It's mostly frozen or shelved, but still delicious. I can't begin to list them all..

Have a great godless garden in 2015, everybody!

Patricia if the guard elk keeps the other animals away Im all for it. Ning wanted a llama for the same purpose. Im favoring a cougar or leopard.

Spud thanks for the great video. Deer are my #1 frustration. They can and do take a plum or app,e or pear tree that you have nurtured for 3 years, and eat it to nothingness overnight. Rabbits ate all ofmy onions. According to the book they wont eat onions, but I've had trouble teaching my rabbits to read. i dont mind moles too much but the damn voles are like underground or ground level deer.

Now most of my young trees have a circle of fencing 5 feet high. In a narrow space, my deer dont jump the fence so far. Foe voles, I wrap young trunks with 1/4 inch hardware cloth. Next project is chicken wire boxes on the raised beds for veggies favored by bunnies.

That fence is interesting. I should try that.

Great tip, Spud, thanks. I've had to get rid of every rose bush I had because the deer and elk were just trashing them the moment they started blooming.

For you peeps that have trouble with deer eating you plants, I just saw a show on the TV show "Growing a Greener World", that showed how to make a small simple fence that fools deer into thinking they can't jump over it.  Here is the video of the show.  The simple fence is at 10 minutes:
