Your fencing design sounds good. Sluggo PLUS is also great against the snail/slug,

My only complaint is that it takes so long and only produces 1 "fruit." Then I realized that it produces best in the "off" season. I can plant the seeds in Jiffy Pellets in the fall, then, as I pull up the spent summer crops, I can replace them with the kohlrabi seedlings. That space normally stays empty all winter, so I'll be turning "wasted" space into "productive" space. YEE HAH! Life is Good! happy turtle
I had forgotten about this from last year. I was so disappointed in the cabbage, pak choi, and turnips, I had about given up on winter crops, but I will definitely plant a bunch of kohlrabi, now. Very Happy

The deer have found everything planted outside the Salad Bar -- including anything brave enough to venture through the fence holes. Sad  Katie and I are moving everything inside the fence that still shows any sign of life. My poor little Salad Bar will be bursting at the seams, but it's our only chance at having any homegrown veggies -- well, I do still have my kitchen balcony garden, but so far it hasn't produced much. Sad Luckily, the weather is cooperating. If we were having our normal, blistering hot August, we'd have to throw in the trowel. Butterfly Junction - Page 30 43549

I love when volunteer plants come up to add some color to the gardens. These sunflowers came up from seeds that the birds dropped, and they really brighten the flower garden.

I love volunteer plants as they are usually strong and healthy.  My best runner beans were grown in my compost heap and far out-produced my planted ones.

Butterfly Junction - Page 30 Empty Asparagus Beans

Post  countrynaturals on 8/16/2019, 10:24 am

I planted at least 5 varieties of beans this year, but the only thing to produce -- and actually thrive in this heat are the asparagus beans I planted from 2017 saved seeds. I read that if you save your best seeds from your worst conditions, it will pay off. This year's crop proves it! Ask me if I'll be saving seeds this year. Razz

Summer finally caught up with us. I am now over a week behind in my grandiose 2nd season plans, with only a couple of nice days ahead. No more 107s, but several low triple-digits. Sad

3 more 104 days in the forecast, so my 2nd season plans are now officially canceled. Sad

I'll take the next couple of weeks off, then start my fall garden as soon as the triple-digits go away. At least July and most of August are history, so the heat can't last too much longer, and hot days mean more swimming, so that's the trade-off for less gardening. I give up!
