Garden Update...

Above is the image of the garden and the strawberry patch. We spent most of Memorial Day Weekend in the garden – removing rocks (the small pile is shown in the lower left corner), tilling, enriching the soil, laying down black plastic weed guard, planting, and adding netting to keep out the critters. The garden is about 30 feet wide by 45 feet long. We planted lots of tomatoes and vegetables and are adding more.

A thunderstorm hit on Monday with heavy winds and hail late in the afternoon. The last two sections of the plastic blew up. Luckily the plants weren't damaged. It was kind of frustrating to lay it all down, only to have it be blown up. But it has since been replaced and should hold for the rest of the season. I'm excited for the garden and can't wait until the plants take hold and start producing.

Looks good. Isn't veggie gardening fun. Looks like you have deer too. But that fence is awesome.

So Beautiful Garden, This year has been so strange as everything in the garden is super late due to the prolonged cold spell.
