It’s Official

bags

I have become a bag lady in my attempts to keep the mice and birds out of my garden!!!!

My garden was/is coming along nicely even though I lost a LOT of leaves of my plants to the mice.  My sunflowers were growing in nicely also around the edge and I have been watching the birds dive and grab the fresh tender plant that is starting.  So I am fighting back!!  I have never had a problem with mice in the past.  I was planting some new plants the other day and one ran right out and grabbed a bite of a bean plant!!  BAD!!!

You can see my garden started by seeds here

Here are some of the recent pictures.  You will see from the beginning of the container potatoes until these pictures from yesterday how quickly they have grown and filled up a 2 foot by 3 foot pot.  I am hoping for a good haul of potatoes trying this for the first time.

So far so good with the bags, windmills, and scarecrow.
