The garden. Despite my growing challenge at bending over, the itch to get a spring garden planted took over. It was a little late to plant these, but I figured the likelihood that I’d be planting much later this summer was slim, so it was worth the risk. And we’ve had a long, chilly spring, so I’m banking on that to help. As it warms up, I’m pretty sure a decent amount of tomatoes will volunteer, and cukes as well.
Last year brought the challenge of a mama deer with her fawn, remedied with a lightweight deer fence, and what I referred to as the evil bunnies. While planting last year, there were three of them chasing each other all over the woods, building up their appetites, I’m sure. It may or may not be true that to chase one away I grabbed the closest thing to me to throw… which happened to be a carrot. The hypothetical bunny did not move as the carrot whizzed past its nose. I’m looking forward to fresh produce and herbs right outside the back door again. The parsley, cilantro, sage, and thyme weathered the winter well. There should be some basil popping up once the soil warms. Here is my little plot as of the recent planting.
