this is our first year with our raised beds
the hubs has plans for two more by fall
the bed on the left was mowed down by rabbits
the hub replanted & fenced the bed
i see eggplant parmesan in our future :)
i canned 7 pints of green beans yesterday
and we have many more to pick :)
tomatoes glorious tomatoes
the hubs can hardly wait! :)
and the kale is plentiful :)
if you look closely, you can see a little itty bitty broccoli :)
cabbage.....sour kraut or cooked cabbage with bacon hmmmmm :)
the beds haven't been without difficulties
in the first few weeks the rabbits ate the swiss chard & beets to the ground!
the hubs put up fence and problem solved until....
the deer moved in & reached over the fence and ate our beans!
he put a wire around the entire exterior and again, problem solved until...
the bugs moved in! they started with the kale & ate their way to the beans
we mixed up some pepper garlic spray and as you can see
everything is thriving
until something else finds our garden of eatin'
one battle at a time :)
