Deer Were Here

Pumpkins GoneThey figured out how to jump over our garden fence.  Here’s what’s left of our pumpkin patch.  The only thing left in our outdoor raised beds are hot peppers, but thankfully we’ve still got tomatoes in the greenhouse.  We start our annual gardening process in January with planting seeds under lights, so maybe 9 months of fussing with stuff is enough.  It will be nice to have a break from daily watering but we still need to clean up all the beds, clean out the empty clay pots, plow the potato patch, get more greenhouse flooring to kill weeds between beds, bring in the tomato cages, supplement indoor and outdoor beds with compost from our barns, order garlic and plant spinach, carrots and lettuce.    All in the next four weeks.
