That looks good. Our soil is still a little wet but hopefully I will have mine going shortly. Will also have to eliminate a couple of deer that have become a problem in the garden.

Thanks. I have had over a dozen people ask me how my stuff stays so green and what do I do to achieve it and I won't tell them I just say I guess I have a green thump lol but thats not the complete truth lol The deer don't mess with my stuff as this garden is on the side of my house lol Eliminate deer and fill the freezer sounds like a awesome plan to me. If you move up to close to me you don't have to worry about planting a garden I gotcha covered ;-)

Where would the fun be in that? I really don't need to plant a garden cause I already have so much put up but I just like growing it and I think I can always make room for food.

My peas are trying to come up. I may have to resort to a new spray program though.

I planted zipper peas but if the deer have their way I won't be picking any. Be proud its a deer season is some time away yet but the idea that a deer would go and step on a defenseless juvenile pea plant is reprehensible and should not go unpunished.
