I decided to take a break this year from zucchini, summer squash and cucumbers. Last year was so exciting, then so disappointing. This year I opted for additional herbs, cherry tomatoes, onions, a few different kinds of peppers and snap peas! In just 4 days of planting some of our seeds, kale-broccoli-spinach and the snap peas have ALL sprouted!! It's SO exciting.

Later this week the green wire is going to replaced with the same screen we used for the door, and I'll need to figure out a net to keep out the birds, who have already helped themselves to a handful of berries. The inital height of the garden was too much to take in, but it would have served it's purpose in preventing deer from eating our veggies-like last year. So netting should help stop them as well since I already had Keith shorten the posts.
Also, I remain on the lookout for slug issues and have a copper plan ready to put into action.
