So says Annie, the garden annihilating dog. The most important job was done today. The entire garden is now dog proofed once more!
Mr. Granny drove in the last of the T-posts, and I installed the fencing and the welded wire bottom barrier. One end is temporary, as son John has cut down the old kennel gate to the 3' height of the garden fence, and he'll be installing it for me on Sunday. There are still three old T-posts that are no longer used and need to be pulled. The important thing is, the dogs cannot get in the garden.
With no dogs in the garden, I finally got the peas planted. Cascadia Sugar Snap peas were planted to the left of the kennel garden entrance, while sweet peas (flowers) were planted on both sides of the entrances. The inside of the kennel was cleaned up, the bench moved, and a wood enclosure was placed diagonally in the corner. The morning glories will be planted there, as usual, so they can climb all along the back of the kennel. Sweet alyssum is volunteering all around the bench, and nasturtiums, lobelia and Johnny Jump Ups will be planted later.
The weather was perfect today. I worked outside from 10:00 AM until 6 this evening, not even taking time to come in for lunch. I had covered a small pile of composted cow poo with a tarp last fall, and it was lovely stuff to behold when I dug into it today. I enriched all the pea beds, and top dressed the celery that I'd planted yesterday. Please, Mother Nature, be kind and give me one more day like today so I can get the rest of those sweet onions and potatoes planted!
