We have fence around the garden to keep dogs and deer out. The birds seem to love it. They use the sprinkler as a bird bath and the worms are keeping them fed. We have strawberries in an old horse tank next to the garden. The birds ate my first strawberry, so we now have netting over the strawberries and we have harvested 2. YES 2 whole strawberries. lol

I started with spinach, but the bugs really chowed down on it, so I pulled it up. I like spinach but not leaves with bug holes in them... I planted cabbage and broccoli which seem to be doing fine. I've planted tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow and green squash, peppers, dill, watermelon, and pumpkins. I have marigolds on one side, because someone told me rabbits hate marigolds. I thought it was worth trying to keep out the rabbits. OR I could just put the chicken wire I purchased around the bottom of the fence. I don't think there are any rabbits around here that could jump the 6 feet it would take to get over the fence.....
