Every year at this time, I start thinking about all of the mistakes I've made. I've made some good changes, the primary one being to put cattle panel all around the garden, with deer netting surrounding that. The second good change is getting a dog. Hoping that slinging her poo into the underbrush at the west end of my yard will deter coons from my corn. Third good change is 3 plantings of zucchini. Yes, you heard me right. That allows me to pull the overgrown plants as the new ones are coming into production. Need to improve upon: 1. Increase space between rows and beds 2. Don't be such a sap when it comes to allowing all of the volunteers to stay. Unless they are in an established bed/row, they gotta go.
