The Bag Lady thought she would share some pictures of her garden with you today.
She is very happy that the rain came when it did - her garden was very sad and pathetic-looking a mere couple of weeks ago. It is a lot happier now! (Please click on any of the pictures if you want a better view of how bad the weed situation is!)
She went out yesterday to have a look (and pull a few weeds), and was dismayed to find that, although they look okay from a distance, her peas have had a visitor!
Here is a closer view of what her resident mama deer has been having for a midnight snack:
Apparently, the deer isn't all that fond of potato tops, and could only finish half the row of peas.
She hasn't touched the grapevine, either.... (must be a teetotaler!)
Here is the assistant gardener, inspecting the onions.
The Bag Lady tied some strips of Bounce dryer sheets onto the chicken wire supporting her peas. She used that trick last year and it seemed to help. If it doesn't work this year, she will be forced to come up with a better solution.
