Our garden

It's not totally done. I am still waiting on zucchini from the place down the road (the guy said that their plants were still pretty small and thought that it would be best if I wait a week or two to buy them from him so that they have a little more time to mature). In the picture, I have a space marked out in the dirt in a rectangle - that's where those are going. Just above (below?) that rectangle - toward the middle of the garden we planted carrot seeds. We have leaf lettuce, broccoli, snap peas (DD wanted to use sticks she found in the yard for the peas to climb up), and tomatoes as well. We're so excited for this garden! Oh, and I got my soil half off because they kept me waiting and then forgot about me when I was trying to pick it up at Home Depot. :) Sweet! So, for the cost it would have been for the soil alone, I got my soil AND my plants! :)

Well, after rabbits killed every one of our 15 bushes we planted along our back fence one winter (and they were NOT cheap bushes), we have no trust for wildlife and our vegetation! Someone even suggested that I put mesh over the top because even though the chicken wire has sharp barbs along the top, apparently the deer don't care and will work around that and eat the vegetation anyway. *sigh* You would think that with the highway literally in our back yard, the deer wouldn't hang out in our back yard, but who knows? I did see deer walking down our road one day.
