Fall Broccoli

I chased another rabbit out today… I really need to fix my fence! I am thinking about swapping those old poles out with 2″x2″x8′ treated lumber, and using poultry staples leftover from the compost bin to secure the fence to it. Then again, since the rabbits jump through the top of the “rabbit guard” fence, maybe I should use hardware cloth like I have one the compost bin instead. Anyway, I think I’ll start using a wider mesh for the deer portion of the fence so that flying insects stop getting hung up by it (dragon flies, wasps, bees).

Broccoli, Hairy Vetch, Oregano

I used up some old seeds by filling in the area where the garlic had been. I just tilled it up and planted the new seeds with a little fresh garden soil from the store. On the left is oregano, in the middle is hairy vetch as a cover  crop, and on the right is spinach and broccoli nearest the fence.

Onions

It was a nice so I pulled them. It’ll rain tonight but we should then have drier weather.
