    This year is super special because I am in my new home with close to 2 acres that are raw and I can turn them into anything I want to.

    Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge veggie garden planned and my seed catalogues are in and some of the new products freaking kill me. Indigo tomatoes. Unreal.

    I am going to buy heavy off of Johnny's because the germination rate is to die for with their seeds.

    So fellow gardeners what say you for this season?

    I save most of my own seeds year after year. I still love to spend time with the seed catalogues.

    It's plant genocide time.

    This is going to be the year though. I am going to plant everything I need ('cept olive oil) for an eggplant salad and tabbouleh ('cept bulgar). On my porch. Next to the water can. Blocking the front entrance.

    I'm not ready for seeds.

    I bought a bunch of seeds all optimistic and on the way home had about 20 deer cross in front of me which makes me all pessimistic again. I am sure I will plant some of them, but why bother.

    I'm in mega deer country. I have quite a number of tricks on how to deer proof a garden that doesn't require the use of a firearm.

    Well not until fall

    :lol:

    Seriously. Learned all these goodies from an old timey in Tennessee. And they work.

    Nothing wrong with a little spring venison either.

    There is a black white tail in our area. Haven't gotten a good look at it but have caught glimpses of it a few times. Still too small to be hunted. Hoping to get a photo of it before it gets poached by a trophy hunter.

    I have done most of them I'm sure with limited success. Well except the jars of pee thing. I am not peeing into jars, hiking it out to the garden and then having to look at and smell that nasty. I am just going to buy fence by the mile and fence each row. If you make a big fence around it all, they will just jump it, but they are a little iffy about closed in spaces so I will just try doing the rows they prefer to clean out like tomatoes. The lower growing stuff I will arch fence over with supports to keep it off the plants.

    That veal venison. Or venison veal or just tender tasty venison mcnuggets....pest control isnt hunting. Hunting is something urban dwellers do on weekends in season.
