The main garden
Last year I dug a 1 foot deep trench around it and put chicken wire in it. I filled it in and put a 4 foot fence on it. It's attached to the chicken wire with tywraps. No woodchucks in here. The rabbit liked the cucumbers though.
The picket area is wider and shallower then the 1st year's garden. In the pickets are garlic. The pickets along the back are so I don't mow over the 2 rows of fava beans I planted a week ago. The front right will probably be dill. I'm hoping for lots of pickles. To the left you can see the clubhouse my brother in law built for my son. The woodchucks have made space under it. I tried to pull the mint that had overrun the plot out. I threw the roots near the entrances. If it doesn't die, it might annoy the woodchucks into moving.
The 1st garlic sprouts up.
This came up in the square foot plot I had. We had lettuce mixes planted that never headed. And we didn't pick it because we were not quite sure it wasn't weed. It went to seed, neglected. And this came up. Lettuce? Something from the grass underneath? I'm not sure if we could eat it.
