    I finally found some time to work on my garden and now that all dangers of a late frost has past ( [​IMG] ) I planted some corn. I'll get more planted in the next few days. I'm going to buy some started plant too. Like tomatoes and herbs. Everything else I think I'll just start from seeds like I always do.

    Please excuse the tall grass. We've had a lot of rain lately.

    I put up some deer netting to keep the cats and dog out of the garden. To bad the cats can't see it and run straight into it over and over again. I tied up some paper bowls to see if that'll show them there's something there and you can't walk through it.

    Here's the garden before all the tacky stuff. Hey I don't mind tacky as long as it works. [​IMG]

    I had 100 feet of deer netting and it ran about 10 feet to short so I'm going to have to finish it off with this horse fence I had laying around.

    The garden is only shaded like this in the morning, by noon it's full sun until the sun goes down.

    Here's one of my rain barrels, I have 2. The water comes downt he gutter and into the barrel. There's a spigot and the bottom for filling up watering cans and an overflow on the side.

    Quote:Sure! Nows the best time too...before the sketters come out! I'm going to enjoy that hammock even more this year. Chickens boking on one side and tall corn swaying in the breeze on the other...heaven!

    Quote:DH bought the barrels from some man in Fuquay Varina for $20 each. He then turned them into rain barrels himself.
