Garden views

Here is a view of my humble garden. It is not a whole lot to look at but hopefully we will be able to get a few goodies out of it. I have planted lettuce, peas, tomatoes, peppers, onions and cucumbers. It does not get a lot of afternoon sun so the north side of the garden did not get planted. Nothing ever grows there so I am not going to waste my time putting in little seeds.
Here are the peas and lettuce. I have planted them in four foot squares so that I will be able to weed them a little better. Everything is a little wind blown do to the gusting winds we have had the past few days. Plus the "ugly duckling" has done some damage.
Look at how his paw has stomped this helpless little cucumber. I tell him to get out of the garden but it is hopeless. I am using an organic weed preventer that PREEN puts out. I will keep you updated at how well it works. It is 100% corn meal gluten so the "ugly duckling" had to try it. I thought that it would be best to have safe stuff down in the garden because of him and the children.

A little chicken wire around the perimeter of the garden will keep ugly duckling out just fine. Leave a loose flap to open to get in. We have two separate garden areas and a whole backyard of ugly ducklings and this works well for us. Have just dropped by your blog and really like it:)
