Polityka Vegetable Garden


I started my garden on 26 May 2007.

I started some plants indoors back in late April.

The garden measures 15 feet wide x 25 feet long.

I placed concrete blocks around the perimeter and placed soil and grass clippings in the area to raise the bed. I tilled the soil with 2-50 pound bags of manure. Then I placed 2 foot high, 1 inch hole chicken wire around the outside of the block to keep the rabbits out.

14. On 15 July 2007 I placed 10 foot 1/2" conduit with 2 foot wide plastic fence above the lower fence. Then I ran mason line around with pie plates hanging down. I also place a light at the back door on a motion sensor So far so good, no deer.

I will take more pictures as the harvest progresses.
