Looks great so far Plinius.

Garden looking good Chris.  I haven't started anything new yet, but purchased several kinds of peas that I'll plant tomorrow or the next day.

First day of spring and my garden is under construction...

Oh, I forgot. I've been spreading my last autumn's pile of horse manure on the garden. The pile is still frozen in the middle, even after several days in the 60's!  Too early to plant anything yet.

Regarding ash on the garden, I'm just the opposite. My garden is very alkaline. While I have plenty of wood ash, that's the last place I'll toss it. I take it out to the surrounding fields. After all, they put lime on every year.

I don't believe the whole video, but I do recycle wood ashes by spreading them very thinly in the vegetable garden, lawn, around trees, and orchard area.  My soil is acidic, so can handle a few ashes.

Daniel, Lol. But I believe most of us would be far to soft hearted to harm one.
I found Joans drought map very interesting and she nailed where I am on it.
I'm going to read up on wood chips when I get a chance. Right now it's volleyball season for the girls and I'm busy with them four or five nights a week.

I have heard about dryer sheets for deer. I dont know if they work. Almost nothing other than fencing or dogs, seems to work around here. If you try it I would love to hear the result.

I suggested to someone they should try planting marijuana as a deer deterrent hedge. The deer might eat it, then just kind of hang out and relax. Then you could sneak up on one with a baseball bat and bop it on the head. venison time!

Finally got a little ambitious and chopped-out most of the weeds in my yard.  Maybe I'll plant peas tomorrow.

Has anyone ever heard of using dryer sheets to deter deer? I heard about it on a tv episode where police mentioned that growers use them to keep deer from eating the marijuana. I wonder where they would put them and how many of them.
Just found this interesting and worth a try for those whohave pproblems with deer.
