Thank you all so much for the encouragement. I seriously would not have tried if it were not for you guys! I get so excited when I go over to it because there are always changes.

Spork, you have no idea the havoc a bunny caused on my Swiss chard.

Here is a picture of the cute thing...cute when he is not in the garden. In the garden, I think the proper term would be "varmint." Notice those chard-fed hips!

I would love to grow citrus trees and a pomegranate. It's too cold here.

you need a Max, I used to shoot them for the pot but my wife does not like that so we got Max, he never catches them but he scares them enough so the don't come back, as I sit here he has 2 squirrels treed, its the funniest sight they dont appear to be scared and as usual when they have finished taunting him they come down the tree and run in opposite directions, Max then sit there howling with frustrationClick image for larger version

I have 3 dogs, not quite as large as Max, but pretty big, and I still have rabbits. :(

I got my garden tilled and mostly planted last night--just in the nick of time. Rain, rain, and a little more rain is in the forecast for the next 10 days. Most people around here have not even started gardens. Mine drains well and has lots of organic material, so I can till when others are too wet. I have a feeling I could ask high prices for tomatoes and peppers, if I was so inclined!

I have a 60 by 60 garden, and every year, I say I am going to let some of it go back to grass, but every year, that spring fever hits me and I plant the whole thing! I do love to garden.
