Don't fence me in...

When we started the little kitchen garden beds we had no idea that others would be as interested in the fresh vegetables as we are.
Unfortunately, she likes to eat them fresh from the vines.
So we are building fences around the beds to keep out intruders.

These have the wire stretched on them now.

When we go camping we'll pull them from around the garden and placed together they make a 10' dog pen... duel purpose.

Rain, rain...

We ended up having 4 days of rain last week and getting a little over 5" in total, it really perked up the garden. I planted tomato and pepper seeds and bought some jalapenos from WalMart along with some purple petunias. The season is under way.

It floats...

We finally got the outboard motor for the John Boat and took it out on the Sulphur River Friday, they told us when we bought it we needed to take it out to the lake and put it in the water to run it. So we put it in the water made a big circle in the river, which was down really low, we're about 5" under for rain fall this year, and then loaded it back up on the trailer and came home. We are now in the process of finder the deeper water areas of the lake so we can take it out again. Also, we're supposed to get 3 - 5 inches of rain over the rest of this week, so that will be a good thing too.
