Pat and I want to expand our vegetable gardening from this small, but moderately successful (I know. I know. How can I put small and moderate in the same sentence.) pot garden.
To something bigger in this area (rabbits included).
There is 20 feet between the path in the background to the path in the foreground. The exact dimensions are yet to be determined. We were thinking that maybe bushes or perennials around the fence line of the garden. I thought that 6 foot high snow fencing (in green, not orange, for those of you who know what snow fencing is) would keep the deer out. Maybe chicken wire added to the base would keep the rabbits out. This is a "we" project. Pat supplies the brains and I build, haul, dig, haul, and dig. Oh ya, and rototill. The ground is clay, clay and , did I mention, clay. We will amend the clay with sweet peet (zoo poop and composted leaf humus, available to us lucky gardeners in Ohio). The area is sunny till late in the day.
There are wonderful blogs and bloggers who I found through Blotanical (that's Blotanical at http://www.blotanical.com/ ) who grow and know vegetables. I stand in awe of you. I don't know vegatables. I can barely figure out how to keep my hosta and ligularia alive. I need your ideas, Blotanists. Help this poor veggie-deprived boy out. And since we don't use any chemicals for our plants, we aren't using any on our vegatables.
