Saturday night was forecast to be in the mid-30’s. To protect our lovely growing garden, we covered everything we could and hoped the rest would be okay.
Sure enough, it got super cold and in the low 30’s. We were glad we took the time to protect our plants.
Sunday morning, when it finally warmed up to 50°, we uncovered our garden. Our plants looked happy and healthy.
Hopefully, this past weekend’s cold snap will be the last one of the year and we won’t have to worry with covering our plants again.
On a sad note, Saturday afternoon, we noticed that a deer has been dining in our bean patch. Apparently, bean plants are too tasty for hungry deer to be scared off by shiny pans and pin wheels. Earlier this season, Dianna mentioned something about a homemade deer deterrent. I didn’t know of anything at the time. I was hopeful that aluminum pans and pin wheels would be enough. Now, my mind is changed and I need to surf around the net and see if I can find a recipe for some safe homemade deer deterrent. If I find something that works, I’ll be sure to share it.
We’ve harvested and enjoyed chard, onions and radishes. (If we can keep the critters deterred long enough) future produce and healthy tasty meals will be welcome Summertime treats. Just thinking about it makes me smile.
I hope your weekend was a nice one and
your week is filled with sunshine and smiles.
