Garden Doing Good Dispite Grasshoppers & Deer

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Today went out to the garden today. Got 4 more Yellow Squash, 3 dozen potatoes which were good size, 3.2oz-5oz. My green beans I got 4 of them before the grasshoppers & deer got to them. My zucchini is doing well. I have already gotten 5 from the garden. Nice that they are coming on slow so I don't have too many at a time.

It is so nice to eat from something you started from scratch. My corn is doing good also but don't think it will produce any corn. My Cantaloupe was coming up great & flowering and then the deer ate them all. Will try next year again.

I planted most from seeds I saved from the veggie itself. I started the plants indoors & then transferred outside.

Yellow Squash
Green Onions
Green Beans
Peppers Red, Green, Yellow, Orange

Well that is about all on my garden.

    Sounds like your garden is doing great. I have heard that you can drill holes in bars of Irish Spring soap and hang it around the perimeter of your garden to deter deer. I have not tried it myself. I love that you save seeds from your plants to grow others. I do that too.

    Our cukes did not do well, but the zukes did OK. Tomatoes are not ripened here yet.
    We did not do corn. Onions did well. Only got a few kohlrabi. Lettuce got overrun. Radishes were too close together. Carrots did not do well either. Sounds like you are doing well with your garden. I don't think we have ever had grasshopper trouble. The dogs are tied next to the garden so we usually don't have a deer problem. emoticon

    Yes a fence would help for the deer. The grasshoppers is another story.

    I miss the family veggie garden. Planning one next year if the Lord wills. Would a fence help with the deer???

    My dad use to garden years and years ago, he always had trouble with the deer.
