Will This Snow Go Away Anytime Soon?

Even with the warm, well kind of warm weather we’ve been having the last couple of days….we still have snow on the ground.  I’m really wondering if it will go away before the next batch arrives.
I was walking to take out the trash and wandering around slowly trying to find a good place to plant a garden.  There are a LOT of trees except where my trailer is parked.  I talked to Cyndi about this a couple of days ago on how nice it would be to grow the vegetables that we use on a regular basis.  It would also save us quite a bit of money since the cost seems to be going up every week.  We could spend our hard earned cash on paying off bills instead.  It’s not like there is no room for a garden.   Of course it would have to be off of the ground since it’s very rocky here.  Much research will have to be done before springtime since none of us have ever seriously grown a garden.  Lots of questions.  How do we keep the deer from eating our crop?  What grows best in shady areas.  What to do about water.  How do we keep bugs away without harmful chemicals? How to do this on a shoe string budget?  Kymber and Kat have offered to help with information.  Thanks you two, I hope you know that your e-mail box will be swamped in just a couple of weeks. :)


  1. Google something about keeping deer out of your garden and you'll find some answers. I don't know how well they work because that isn't a problem I have. I use harmful chemicals. Start with easy things like green beans and tomatoes and lettuce. When we used to have a wood stove, I dusted plants with ashes and that seemed to keep bugs away. Just don't try to have a great big garden the first year. Start small.

  2. All good ideas, Donna.

    I was going to Google deers next, but was hoping someone had some first hand experience on what would work.

    I hear that bugs don't like Radishes.

    You are right about starting small...nothing fancy.

  3. I have always wanted to grow a veggie and herb garden but the wild rabbits out here would demolish it in seconds. I want to plant them in raised garden beds and put a fence around them to keep unwanted animals out. It might prove a bit costly though because in your case it would need to be a high fence to keep deer out.

    Good luck though. Home grown veggies are delish.

  4. Gypsy..oh yes, I forgot about the Rabbits. Maybe I'll go talk to one of the neighbors about this. There is a man just down the street that grows vegetables. I bought some from him this past summer.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
