Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

A couple of weeks later.

Howdy all,

What a difference a couple of weeks make.  All growing great!  We mulched
all the beds to keep down weeds and retain moisture.  Deer/bird netting was
put up to protect the fruits from the dang birds.  I saw a real nice strawberry 
ready for picking.  I came back 20 minuets later after I finished watering and
a bird had gotten it already.  Never a cat around when you need.  Oh yea I
know when that cats around.  Nighttime digging holes in the garden.  I have
a trap for it set tonight.  Here kitty.


Roma's and blackberries looking good.

Over the first ring.

Blackberries poofing out.
hundreds on pretty flowers.

All leaves and flowers.  No twigs now.

Deer netting to keep the birds at bay



lots of flowers and berries here too.

 lori putting on the bird netting.  Last week a bird got a ripe berry while I was watering.  NO MORE!

 It all looks so good.
