Still a bit to wet to even work the soil here. I would almost be afraid to put plants in the ground because of a fear of frost. :O :peace: Harry

No more planting for me. I think I’m done with that. Sadly I guess. I don’t need as much equipment as I have. Plows, disks , cultivator, homemade attachments and tractors. But might take up some gardening again someday. So have to keep it. Trouble is if ya don’t use it, well you know what happens.

@DavidBarkey your way ahead of me. We have good temperatures here with no risk of frost but we can’t dry out. It’s raining again now. The only ground ive worked and planted is that little sunflower patch, and I’m wondering if it’s too wet for them. I’ve got everything ready to go as soon as it stops raining!

@propane1 are you putting stuff around your house again this year Noel? That seemed pretty handy to open the back door and grab a few veggies!

Yes Jeff. But just putting a row of lettuce on each side of the step. I should have a row in now. But not done. It is handy to have right at the step. I’ll hopefully plant one row soon. Then the other row mid June or so.
Had lettuce for all summer last year.
Woman doesn’t want vegetables planted there she wants flowers. I said. Fine, you do it. I’m guessing it’s going to be all grass. Except where I plant the lettuce. :giggle:

We could not resist the temptation and planted a few tomato and cucumber plants.

Riding fence this evening. Some critter got in the garden and munched on a few plants. :cuss:
I adjusted the electric fence a little. Hopefully it will be a shocking result! :43:
I decided to mulch the garden this year and so far it seems to be working nicely.

Harry I’m using a Gallagher solar fencer. That is attached to four strands of fence. I’m running two wires down low, one midway up and one at the top. I don’t remember the specifics of the fencer but I thought it was supposedly rated for 5 miles of wire. It does work, I haven’t had a deer in there yet, although the raccoons have occasionally found a way in.
