    Hi Folks - I am taking a page from cheekysaver as I love to garden and show off my results.

    I will start - we have a 3 acre property with all the backyard bells and whistles (pool, hot tub, many decks - all DIY) but I am especially proud of my garden.

    I started with a 30 by 30 foot plot, then added a 16 fruit tree orchard, along with several raspberry bushes which propagated to 30 feet of raspberries.

    This year I decided to go with an interesting raised garden bed layout. Let the growing begin!

    Just picked some cilantro and onion for tonight's guacamole. Tomorrow, harvest the bok choy and start on the kale and lettuce. I will give most of it away as I have far too much.

    question: how do you keep out the four legged diners
    Ontario votes in 2018. Make your vote count. Remember your hydro and gas bills.

    We have lots of flying ospreys so few veggie eating animals. I put loose netting on the berries when ripening to keep the birds away. I'very never lost anything much, thankfully.

    We have seldom deer, too close to the lake and open farmers fields too, I suppose.

    ]New photos. Canopy trellises are up and the climbers have started to climb. I harvested the pak choy today, and more basil and cilantro for my soup. We just need lots of sun and I hope to start picking raspberries and strawberries by next weekend.
