These last few days have been good for digging – snow and a cold crust on the muddy clay. It’s supposed to get warm and mucky again, so dig while the frost sprinkles!

The deer have been digging too.

They have gotten through or over the fencing some how, and have found the remaining beets, chard and cabbage. That’s OK – they’re too small and skrawny to worry anout.

I prepared and sowed several more beds for late summer and fall.

More turnips, daikon, radishes, onions, beets, burdock, etc.

One crop circle is finished. The caged garden with a fence around it has all the raised beds made and filled with seeds and plants. Plants that deer and rabbits like – brassicas, chards, beets, leeks etc. 


The brassicas are covered to keep the flea beetles away. 

We got another crop circle tilled and 3 more raised beds made in the caged garden. They are sown with beets and chard here where they are protected from the dear and rabbits that love them.
