Fenced In

I sure hope that the great weather we’ve been having this spring is an indication of the summer we are going to have.  Normally spring is my least favorite season of the year – I hate the rain and the damp and the mud, but this spring has been absolutely fantastic so far.  Not just the unseasonably warm temperatures we’ve been having, but the lack of mud.  I love it 

I got the fence up around my garden.  My main goal is to keep the Evil Stupid-Garden-Eating-Rabbits out.  I’m hoping that it will keep the deer out too, but I know that they would be able to hop the fence if they really wanted to.  Hopefully they won’t want to.  I know The Ladies would be able to get in too, but they will probably think it’s too much trouble to fly over…


Garden Fence

It’s just plastic garden fencing and will probably only last this season, but I think it will hold me over until next year when I can (hopefully) afford something more permanent.

I am definitely looking forward to getting some strawberries this year!

Peas, lettuce and cabbage are all in the ground now 

I want to get a load of compost to mix in all the garden beds.  I haven’t added any in a few years and they are definitely due.  Unfortunately the Amherst Compost Facility doesn’t open until May 1rst, so I’ll have to wait another week…  If the weather is nice next Saturday, that place is going to be a zoo!
