I love the way my pole beans are climbing up my recycled fencing. We picked some last night for our supper and it was so nice to be able to do it standing up. Next year I will reverse the beans and tomatoes, The tomatoes are climbing on a taller fence section, and they don't need as much height as the beans.
Can you see it? My first watermelon. I'm so excited. Once again my city-girl roots are showing.
We've managed to keep the deer and other critters away with the marigolds and herbs. We've been using Safer Brand spray for the insects. So far we are keeping organic. I'll let you know how that goes as well.
Tomorrow I plan to start drying some herbs. Can't wait to get to it.
