I have sweet corn, sweet potato, peppers, onions, water melons, squash, and am soon to expand the summer garden. I try to work in the garden and yard just as the sunrise lights up.

The joy of eating and sharing adds to the work out fun. It is just a back yard project. I help a neighbor with his garden. He is 92 and a WWII Vet. Still going and enjoying his garden.

Life is Great in the Garden. The bugs enjoy it too Thinking-about
Wow! What an awesome garden!! That sounds soo nice that you get to enjoy something positive and share with others (wish I lived in your neighborhood! I'd share with ya')... I know your neighbor is loving it!! Yep, sunrise is about the only part of the day to be out this last couple weeks here (SC) my poor baby trees are suffering dearly, was hoping someone could help me trouble shoot what else I can do, watering daily (early in the day 7-8 am) I may loose my cedar tree, I just planted this spring...and it was doing well Crying-into-tissue Thanks so much for sharing thoughts of your garden, as "You reap the rewards of the seeds you sew!" It's Heavenly!

This year our sweet potatoes got to about 6 inches and locusts ate all the leaves.

We went on a rage picking, catching, and squashing grasshoppers for a few days and the squash appear to be trying to recover... my stupid chickens are supposed to keep the locust down, but they seem to prefer hanging out in the shade, eating my blackberries and discussing politics...

Same here...my dog eats EVERYTHING, plants, the persimmons, he even stands under the tree waiting for them to fall....He eats the frogs and the Anoles (American chameleon)!! ugh! the problem with the persimmons now is he is freely planting them where ever he takes the notion. I try to harvest some before they are gone as my Mom love persimmons so I do try to sneak a few when P.D. isn't lookin' to make some jam.

I try to plant enough to share I enjoy the critters. Last winter the deer did not share any of the peas. At first just two or three would show up then the word spread. They got so bold as to walk past me to snack. It is hard to call them wildlife. Dielaughing

Aww! What a kind soul you are kwhenrykerr! We could be kindred spirits! I love the critters too, but if they get too greedy (the deer) would planting mint help to deter them?? I've heard that mint is a natural deterrent for some critters....just wondering if it would work on deer...Eat-popcorn

Used to garden on 1/2 acre plot and really enjoy it but weeding time was my nightmare do to light headiness when bending over. I'm talking medication for high blood pressure. Now I garden in Earth Boxes. The beauty of it is.. No more weeding, once plants are in, with automatic watering system there is no work to speak of, if only the Tomato Hornworms would leave my tomato plants alone..Wink

So some know what earthbox is.. Not sure if I can post this or not. Moderator, please remove if is inappropriate. Thanks.

I love my earthboxes and the other containers that are raised up. They are more protected than the other plants. I guess I will replant the peas this winter I do enjoy the deer.

I'm with ya' kwhenrykerr, I love 'em too, but the encroachment of development is
destroying the range in which they flourish...I truly hate this... I want to live away from housing development JUST for this reason.....I'd be planting for the critters, and my hubby would be shaking his head at me when I get the salt block out for them....
putting up "NO HUNTING" signs on the 10 mile area!! Earthboxes sounds like a winner!!! thanks theone !! Smile

It has been a warm summer for us. The raspberries. watermelon, cantaloupe and cucumber seem to love it. But the blueberry and grapes look a little withered on the edges.
