At last the Herb Garden is functional :o)

Sometimes it seems to take a long time for things to be done ...especially when your anxious..it took forever for the boards to be chosen and another for ever to be put together...but it didn't take forever as of this date to fill it up ;o(..but not to worry ...I was able to claim the yard on the side of the house as my very own :o) it's going to be my green garden :o) and any thing else I want that Cecil has no desire or wishes to plant...(but guess who will be willing to eat from it).
Seen my new "Garden"from now on  it will be called Ginny's "Side Garden" :o)  You can see I already have things planted in it...First I put in some Georgia collards...last time they lasted about 4 years..they just kept on growing and they tasted delicious...This year is good for the gardens..so good the Deer came and ate up two of my tomato's from plants that were in Cecil's garden...I hope the little hill will detour them away from mine :o(
Cecil is so disgusted because of it...we went to Home Depot and got some Deer netting...we will try that and see if it helps...or we will have to find a farm this year with better luck than we have....That's my neighbors fence..the weather has beaten it pretty bad..the other neighbor put some shellac on hers and it still looks good....

It's looking great, Ginny! That's too bad about the deer getting the tomato plants. I hope Cecil's net can keep them from getting any more. I'm sure you're both looking forward to all the good things you're going to grow and be able to have to eat. Have a nice Sunday! :-)

Thanks Daisy, you have a nice Sunday too! All we can do about the deer that we know of has been tried...I'd hate to put up a fence because of the deer...with only "Almost and Acre Farm" that would be squeezing it :o(
