It's been a bad year for gardening. First of all I can't reach anything below my knee's so I have to find a tool to do anything. I planted too early but that didn't matter since my neighbor's 3 rooster's and a hen took care of the garden. After much to do about free ranging one's chicken's in a neighborhood finally he fenced them in. I planted again only to have the weather change and 2 frosts finished the garden again.
I left it go to weeds and finally it looked like we might get some warm days and sun. I pulled every weed out by the roots, turned the soil and planted again. My garden started to look good and then one day all the buds on my lilies were gone as were the green beans and lettuce. The next morning the corn was eaten to the ground. I caught a bunny in the garden so next we put up a fence and again I planted.
The next day a hole was eaten in the fence and more of the almost bare garden was gone. I couldn't believe a small rabbit could eat a hole in the fence. We put up the trap at the hole. Yesterday morning we had caught the garden thief and it was not the bunny at all.
I'm not so sure all this was worth it. I use to enjoy having a garden but I was healthy then and I don't remember fighting all these things to grow it. I made a list of what wasn't touched. Onions, beets,cucumbers, tomatoes and herbs...not much of a garden.
