Garden progress

Went out tonight to put more wire up around the garden. I have about a 5 foot high fence protecting the place and need to put up one more strand of page wire before I’m comfortable with leaving the pesky deer roaming around the place. It should end up around 7 or 8 feet high.

Milly came out and finished up planting a section of the garden. When you do a square foot garden there is a lot of planting involved as you fit much more into a tight area. We still need to get potatoes in and some squash and zucchini. Watering is a pain as we don’t have a well pump yet.

Not sure how this garden is going to go. The soil looks really brown not black which means clay based. I’m hoping we get something from it this year and maybe next year it will flourish.

We are looking to finish up things in the next day or so.

I just love being outside at night listening to the crickets and coyotes chirping and howling. No wind tonight and the sun was setting and I just didn’t want to leave. I’m pretty happy to live in such an incredibly beautiful place…no matter what Barnabas thinks.
