Today we went to the produce barn and got some Florida tomatoes and some cantaloupes. We can get them there earlier because they buy to sell until their own local ones come in. They still have some strawberries, fresh asparagus, and yellow squash. I love summer when you can get fresh veggies and fruits locally. Where we lived before, we had a huge garden with everything imaginable. I canned and froze. We had fruit trees and blueberries in addition to veggies. We planted "greens" in spring and fall. I really miss our own garden, but we just don't have the space here to do it. Besides, there are too many deer. I could go to the garden and pick each day our dinner, and then run down to the lake to catch a fish to complete dinner. That was really great.

    So sorry about your cabbage plants. Your garden always does so well. I will be happy for you to share your veggies (you did last year). Deer got all of my lilies in front yard last night. I can't believe this is happening. I have been using the same solution form 3 years and it has worked. Maybe they are getting immune to it. emoticon

    By next year, you will have space for the big garden. In the meantime I'll ship you produce from ours, LOL. I just hope ours does well this year. Didn't start out well with 60 cabbage plants eaten emoticon Everything else still looks good though.

    I bought a cantaloupe the other day and it was almost too hard to eat. Hope yours is better.

    I too have too many deer for a big garden. This year I am trying a container garden. emoticon
