|You can't see them, but there are zucchini here. Tomatoes, too.|
But we've moved. In this house we're on our own, infrastructure- wise. Since I am disinclined to wrap my yard in chain link fence to ward off critter-related losses I'm just going to have to, as they say at the office, operate at risk. At least for now. We're less than two miles from the old place so will likely see the same deer, rabbits, ground hogs and raccoon we've come to know lo these many years. So be it and may I get a nibble or two for my trouble.
When it comes to vegetables, I am not much for glam and flash. Ours is strictly a radish, lettuce, tomato, bean, and squash operation. If I'm feeling fancy, and this year I think I am, I'll put up a bean trellis. We can't do much, really, because the only sunny spot in the year isn't very big - I might be able to squeeze, I don't know, six by 10 feet out of it.
This weekend's big plans are to dig the bed out from the place where...I don't know what used to grow. There are some things that look bulb-like there, an overgrown rose of some beleaguered type and a lilac which is the only thing I'm planning to keep. Next time you see this area, it'll be chock full of either veggie plants or maybe the chewed up stubs of veggie plants. Either way, there's work ahead.
