Garden update

I’m so excited to say the garden has so far exceeded our expectations, even though the squirrels tried their best to destroy it. They love digging around in the dirt, trying to bury their ‘goodies’.

P1010244 My husband came up with this idea and so far it’s worked out really great. We haven’t had any unwanted ‘guests’ since he’s put it up. He trimmed down some cedar and screwed in the chicken wire. He decided to make three separate closures in case I wanted to take them out and weed, but, I’ve found that I can reach everything just fine without having to remove them. He attached them by adding large screws to the top of the bed, and drilled matching holes in the cedar that’s attached to the chicken wire, then the wood screen just sits on top in holes, loosely locked into place.

P1010246 The peas really like it too, they’ve become quit attached.

P1010242 The green beans are really taking off too. They were attaching themselves to the wire and the peas. We put in garden stakes so they can grow upright.

I'm a wife and Mom. I love baking, crafting, scrap booking, and reading for fun. I work full-time outside of the home and I have one adult son who has high functioning Autism. My husband and I have been married for over 25 years and I still love him as much today as I did the day we were married.
