. I can deal with the spinach because it is easy to thin. But I allow him the priviledge of thinning the carrots. My hands do not work so well and I can not grasp the tiny carrot seedlings.
How high is your fence?
Can you do a rain dance?
Check your plants daily. Look for bugs or anything else going wrong.
Keep the veggies weeded.
Plant something every week/every other week/monthly, especially greens
Don't handle the plants when they are wet.
Harvest plants at all stages of growth. I find it especially fun to harvest really young veggies. gotta get your kicks somewhere
Ask lotsa questions here.
I have marked on my calendar that yesterday put us 8 weeks from our last frost free date. I will be buying potatoes tomorrow and probably planting them this weekend. Still too early for me to start tomato, pepper and flowers. Gee, I think I can start my broccoli and cabbage plants
