Dean and I worked in the yard last weekend and spent some time redoing the small veggie garden. Some of our summer plantings had sprouted babies. I hated pulling them up but they took up valuable space and I knew they'd never produce anything.
I had to clear out 3 large basil plants that had gone to seed. I seriously doubt I'll have to plant any next summer. I did leave 2 babies that sprouted, just enough for salads and such til the first frost.
We pulled up the chicken wire (aka squirrel deterrent) then weeded the whole thing. I planted arugula, spinach, and some lettuces.
I also put out some leeks, carrots and brocolli....never done those before....we'll see how it goes.
Dean put up some bird netting this time. The chicken wire was a pain to deal with....hope the netting is better.
The plants perked up nicely after a little watering and pretty soon, the entire garden will be crowded.
