I built a fence yesterday out of bamboo sticks and garden netting. It is a little difficult to see from this photo, but the netting is there. Time will tell if it holds up against the dogs. But, for the time being, it was a quick and cheap way to keep them out of the onion and garlic patch.
The squash plant is loving life in the sunny corner, growing huge leaves and budding. The lettuce and chard are doing well, too.
Even some of the basil is starting to come back (a la 2nd edition). No sign of the onions yet, but it is too early.
This is a blog that I started as a resource for my gardening adventures. I hope to add to this blog each year as I continue to garden and, hopefully, get better at it by utilizing the information here as well as learning from my past experiences. You will also find some writings in the earliest posts in regards to some of my beliefs in regards to how we, as people, should garden, farm, and eat. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to chat more about these topics. Thank you for stopping by!
I will try to keep a running total of all costs associated with gardening.
