Not sure if any of you entered the contest for the garden tower but they have selected the winners then gave 250 people that entered $100 off the purchase of one. These thing are so neat and if I could afford one I would do it in a heartbeat.

Not sure if the discount codes are transferable or not but if anyone wants to try the first person to pm me can have my code.

Something (mouse or squirrel?) ate a bunch of shoots from my new rhubarb crowns. I hope they are okay since the leaves are poisonous.

My quince tree is loaded with blooms, and I'm super-happy about that. I've been trying to snap a photo but every time I bring my camera out there a breeze kicks up and makes everything wiggle.

Figs and currants are leafing out; grapes have had leaves for a few weeks now.

My rhubarb is close to producing some stalks. I've been harvesting asparagus for a couple of weeks.

Last year the groundhog from hell (and his wife) devastated my garden. I'm trying red pepper flakes in their holes and around the emerging kale and lettuce. Does anyone have any methods (beside nuclear weapons, lol) that drive them away?

Harvests are always good!

Next door they have had a dog or dogs forever and that keeps just about everything out of their gardens.

Happy Compost Day! Our city compost facility opened yesterday. Hubby missed opening day. But he has his 6 5-gal buckets ready for his free compost. The first of many runs during his lunch break, I'm sure.

I'm not sure if you Garden Thread regulars remember, but a few years back I mentioned I was on the waiting list for a plot in my community garden. At the time I said the waiting list was 2-3 years, but I was mistaken - when I finally got my plot last Spring I had been actually waiting for 5 years (time flies!), which it turns out is the standard time.

Here are some before and after shots of my plot:

This year I am thinking about adding a trellis to one or two sides. I'm running out of time, though, so I may have wait until Fall for any additions

Also, Happy Composting to you, CaseyCupcake!

I've heard that they fear and hate dogs. I don't have one, but I've even considered getting some kind of device that mimics a dog barking! So far he hasn't shown his evil, ugly head, but if I see that little sucker, I might try it! Thaks for the tip, RP!

Day 2 of compost. I figure at least another 10 runs to bring up the terrain in our yard. Our development was slightly swampy when it developed on the early 50s. Lots of sinking areas. Did I mention I live in the middle of a glacial lake?

Raspberries have been planted. 3 in the front yard and 2 in the back. Hoping to get those peas planted before the weekend is over!

Giant bunny arrived this morning--checking out my raised garden to see if I planted those peas yet

The laugh is on the bunny. Just mounds and mounds of compost. Tulips are coming along nicely inside their cages. Everything in my yard is caged. Looks like a prison yard.
