Barbare, my deer and rabbits respond very well to companion planting. It's their version of an all you csn salad bar.

Randall, I have used D.E. in previous years and promptly forgot about it until your post. Thank you!  Something is eating my plants too, they look fine at 7:00 p.m. and by 7:00 a.m. their leaves have been chomped. I'm going to pick up some today. We are suppose to get rain this weekend - wonderful!

Barbara, over the years, I've tried all kinds of home-made sprays. They've never worked, and it takes too much effort to brew them, especially garlic. I have both chicken wire and a type of field wire with narrow openings. I'm sure people think I'm growing fences and posts, not veggies!

King, onions are easy to grow (bulb starts, not seeds). When brown, I lay them out on my garage floor to dry for about 2 weeks, then store them in mesh bags.

First harvest of the year

It's really big after 4 weeks and no hail here thankfully heavy rain for maybe ten min

Randall, I'm assuming you are using chicken wire as a barrier fence. Have you ever used companion planting, plants rabbits don't like with your veggies?  Maybe soap? 


Yep, if a mastiff sits on your plant its pretty much squashed, no pun intended.  I guess it is just the enjoyable part of your gardening addiction. 

King, yeaaahhh! first sighting is always heartening isn't it?

I spent a good part of yesterday fencing the garden--no easy task for a 40'x60' size. Only half is "fenced".Now that my green beans are sprouting, I have to protect them, too.

King, you're a step ahead of me. I don't see carrots yet. Did you get hail from those storms? They missed me, thankfully.

Barbara, if my dog, a mastiff, sat on my flowers (which she does), that pretty much destroys them. I don't which is worse, the damage done by moles, or the holes dug by Molly to catch them!
