With my new vegetarian diet 80 days in the making, my vegetable garden is much more meaningful this year. Last year, I got my garden tilled and planted and then ended up sick, in the hospital and unable to work it. Our sons and a few of their cousins weeded it one day during a family event, but it was too little too late for the garden last year.
This year, the possibilities are endless! I’m healthy, full of energy and excited about the interesting vegetables I can grow in my 24×24 space. I’m not worried about deer and rabbits, because like Tim the Tool Man, I “rewired it.” My garden is a a foursquare bastion of protection against pilfering animals. Anchored by 4 6x6x8 posts on the corners, it is wrapped with rabbit fence that goes below grade and then 5,000 volt deer fence above. Here, kitty kitty. I got something for you, kitty.
The deer fence is solar powered and I installed a rather nice chain link fence gate. I hand-dug a trench out to the garden site and laid 1″ water pipe to irrigate the garden. I built a drip irrigation system to water my garden with ease. I’m sitting here now looking out across the field at the overgrown patch of ground. I just ate a great Scott Gribbin Dip Egg breakfast and I’m ready to go knock it out.
Bye. I’m outta here. I’ll let you know how it went. By the time you read my next post, I’ll be ready to put some seeds and plants in the ground.
P.S. The local fencing store can supply whole sale.
