THIS.... is what I have to do in order to protect the baby lettuce and cilantro seeds from being scratched and pecked at! I sowed seed this afternoon, and before I could let the hens out for their afternoon foray, I had to scrounge up some leftover chicken wire and fi-nagle it over and around the newly planted bed!
My trusty watering can, filled with some organic concoction from last years Fulton St. Farmers Mkt...somewhat guaranteed to produce healthier, tastier, better-for-you, produce. I'm for anything that comes with a promise.
THIS is the expected results of todays labor. Cilantro for that extra-special touch to my homemade salsa. And Salad Bowl lettuce lettuce, picked while young and tender. yum...
And at the end of a long day of gardening?
A bowl of popcorn, a Country Gardens magazine, and a dirty martini.
Deckside, of course!
