We're trying raised beds. DS and I made trellises for the beans and peas. Those dang deer have already eaten some of the peas - before they were barely up. I was chasing those rascals out of the peas the other morning at 4 a.m. So now I am hanging DS's dirty socks on the pea trellis. That boy's socks can curl the hair on a bald head at 30 feet. Seems to be working.........
This one has tomatoes and flowers. I planted flower seeds around the edges, and today I found several seedlings are up. Yea! I have thinned the cucumbers and radishes, we have ground squirrels real bad and they have been munching on some things. Time to get busy on them. One has tomatoes and the other side is herbs and flowers.
We made 4 beds - 8" x 12' x 4'. Around the firepit we put down stone and used rock crete (?) but the weeds are still coming thru. Some people said to just use sand - but the sand around here brings in scorpions - so weeds are not so bad. Ha!
(West side flower bed.) The iris' are fixin' to bloom. We are to get rain all week. I'm looking for rain barrels - any suggestions? It's pretty quiet here, DS left for the ranch yesterday morning, and DH has a horrible schedule this week. So the dogs, horses and I have been spending lots of time together. I love getting up before the sun comes up, listening to the birds. Ha! Ya'll have a good day and until we meet again, may the good Lord take a likin' to ya'!
