Here I go again...
I must get something established in this muddy patch.
This will be at least the fifth or sixth time I've planted the shading bed.
All my attempts have remained failures mostly do to pets.
I have come to understand that this piece of dirt is irresistible to dogs
but now I know it is also irresistible to chickens too.
It's not a very attractive spot but I can't bring it in me to spend money on this anymore.
So..I found some rocks from around and used the old chicken wire and tobacco sticks as
a temporary fence.
OMG!! They have heard my pecking and here they come a runnin.'
They are so afraid of missing out on something.
These girls don't eat everything I plant but if they find something they like
they will keep at it until there is nothing left.
Wishing you all the best on you gardening endeavors!
