Most of the garden has been planted.
Still a few things to get in the ground.
But I must wait for the “right” day to plant them.
This year I am trying something new.
Well that’s what I call them, anyhow.
I’ve always tied my tomato plants to wooden poles or metal posts.
But I recently watched a movie, “It’s Complicated”. Which, by the way, is hilarious.
Meryl Streep was picking tomatoes in her garden and I noticed that in the movie the tomatoes were tied to something similar.
Of course, their version was fancier than my tomato teepees.
But that’s Hollywood.
Anyway, I have a lot of downed wood on the farm from the droughts of last year and before.
So, I volunteered The Captain to help me and we brought back several cedar posts.
With twine, I tied together the tops of the posts and formed teepees.
This allows me to plant more tomatoes in a smaller space.
And more space to plant other things.
I am really hoping this works well.
The deer found my garden last year.
And I can see they are going to be a problem early this year.
They walked right down through the middle of my garden.
Luckily, they stepped over anything that was planted.
Of course, they don’t want to damage any plants or sprouts.
That would ruin their plans for EATING them later.
