Plans afoot

Newly tilled bed. (I need more dirt, too.)

I hope to be able to get in the garden most of Labor Day tp do my own laboring. I have decided the chickens are no longer wanted in the veg garden, so I purchased 200' of 5' tall deer fencing to keep them out. This means I get to put in 3 more large raised beds (two 3'x32' and one 3'x45') along its interior periphery.

We shall see if their bloodlust for the garden is stopped by a 5' fence. Seeing as they can fly, I may have to resort to more dire means. In the interim, though, this should be a quick project.
