We finally got around to working on our raised beds again--and got the cooperation of the weather. It was a fabulous weekend and if we hadn't run around so much we might have gotten more done. As it stands, we have five boxes built, two to go, and a lot of leveling of the ground to match all the leveling we did on the boxes. But we are well on our way to a lovely raised vegetable garden Here are a few pictures (from each angle):
We are trying to come up with solutions to keep out the rabbits and deer. I have thought about planting repellent plants but am not sure how well they work. We have been told that you pretty much have to put a fence around your garden. One neighbor said their cat keeps the bunnies away--we don't have a cat, but I have been pondering planting catnip to attract the neighbors cat to do the job.
Do you have any suggestions?
