How do you keep bats from invading the lettuce? 😉

so sad: just got home from a 9 day trip and all my tomato plants had to be burried. I said a prayer for them and kissed them good bye. The squash and Okra did fine. I guess we had a lot of strong winds and the little guys were just not strong enough to stand the pressure. Poor guys.

Was at a local retail mega mart today and saw a guy and his wife buying about $100 of tomato plants. Hope they have a green house. Anyway, I planted some pansies today in hanging pots and some planter things. Sure brightens things up, and they should be fine in these 30 degree nights.

Can you tell which one I chopped the top off???? Only been 10 days but an amazing result. Peppers were not worth topping off but Tomatoes are proving this is the key. Stem much thicker and new growth everywhere. Impressed





Started them 2 weeks too early. They are outgrowing the space I have under the indoor grow lights. I just have them outside for this picture. Not hardening off for another 2 weeks.

A work in progress. Much more to follow. The dying oak tree comes out Tuesday weather permitting. The shorter row area is about 100' deep.

Never heard of those varieties. Always good to have more than you need. Just in case a plant doesn't produce or just to give away to friends and family. Or to can them.

Sweet. Looking good! Nice size and layout. Any worries about wildlife there?


The oak looks like it has tiny buds on it, maybe its not dead? Looks like a cool spot where you can put a table there and work under the shade.

The base of the oak is rotting and carpenter ants going and coming. To close to the house to take chances.
Wildlife has a problem. Me and my soon to be electric fence..... Lots of new construction going on behind this area and around it. Deer have moved out as far as I know. None have been seen this year. Only wildlife seen have been a few squirrels. Two hot wires down low will stop them. More wires 5" apart will turn the coons, skunks, and possums around. Here we are well inside the city limits and ribbons of woods is home to a lot of wildlife. Even deer wander in. Never had a problem using this method in years past. Birds will plan on feeding on the cherries coming in later in the week but there again bird netting will deter that problem. Have a plan to deter birds in the strawberry patch... We shall see.
