Gardens 2023

It's ground engaging time. Seeds, manure, soil, and everything that goes with them. But that's not all. Cutting and hauling wood, chainsaws and the works!

But keep in mind that the raccoon isn't wearing shoes, it'll feel a bigger zap.
@JSinMO Eugen is wright . one will damage the other . They work on the same principle as a CDI box and coil . The lack of nice grass will hinder its performance . So will dry ground and the grounding and connections . It is a small solar unit , there are larger ones .All are battery or hydro driven , the solar panel is just keep the battery charged . Most garden raiders will hit between dusk and dawn when the dew is out upping it performance . Remember it is not there to kill them but rather to think twice before trying again . Coons lead with there noses and a solid wack on there nose is something they will not soon forget .

Another solution to improve performance is to add multiple earth grounds throughout the fence. Will increase the tingle. Lol

I guess we’ll run the fence as is for now and see how it goes. The only change I’ll make is a better ground rod instead of the rusty length of rebar it’s hooked to now! :33: :rofl:

Took a few pics this evening.

Tomatoes and peppers are looking good.

My 3 short rows of potatoes are looking great this year, especially considering they rotted in the wet ground last year and nothing grew!

First flower on the zucchini

Everything is up and looking good, except the bush beans. I used some old seed, I may have to replant it.

The garden is coming along. I staked the tomatoes, peas are growing up my makeshift trellis,

Every thing seems to be on track. My 3 rows of corn are up. I’m debating on planting another couple rows.

How are you all doing this year?

Your garden is doing well for sure @JSinMO ! Potato plants blooming already? I keep forgetting you're so much closer to the Equator :D

I barely managed to plant some potatoes two days ago, a job made 3x harder with two toddlers "helping" me :)) We decided to plant some tomatoes and cucumber plants. I'll be happy if we manage to do it before July :giggle: :violin:

We have been really dry here but we got a nice rain of over an inch Sunday. The plants seemed to jump up after that!

I think things are about to start getting busy in the garden. Tomato plants are loaded. Beans and peas are getting close. We have already been getting zucchini, onions and some jalapeño peppers.

Our cantaloupe and water melon vines are looking good! I hope they continue, I can’t wait for a good watermelon!
The potato’s are just about ready then we’ll dig them up and plant pumpkins in there spot.

The only problem is we are getting into drought conditions here. Some of the plants are actually burning up. I had to put a water trough out to they can come get a drink!

I hope you all are have a good year too!

That's quite impressive Jeff, and you got no weeds! :O We had a dry phase here too, so much that I had to water the few plants we got, and the cedar hedge. After I watered the little garden patch, it seemed that next day the weeds grew exponentially :bee:
