Started my Newfie garden.

Wish I had a small plot to do this, as I do like fresh veggies . Since I do not, I am stuck doing it this way . One does, what one can right .

 

Chives, beef steak tomatoes and peppers so far.  Going to grab a few more large pots for Swiss chard and one for beets. Might get a long box for radishes and carrots.

They will get sun most of the day, as they are facing south, and the sun moves east to west here.

I stopped by CTC ( you know the store right ) on the way home Albert. They had so many variety's of tomatoes.. I asked, where the hell are the normal beef steaks ? Young gal looked through the carts and found me 2. I was happy with that.

 

If you like, I can grab a bunch of tomato plants for you , as I plan a trip down your way this week . Oh, they have Roma as well. Cherry's too .

 

Let me know. You know where I hang out . 👨‍🍳

Thanks B, I’ll venture out tomorrow or next week. I have nurseries close by too so I may hit them. I heard Home D was a zoo in Woody.

You could look into using gutters.

Big problem with Fred the squirrel here. He likes to dig in the pots. I buried some chicken wire in the dirt. He will poke a paw and I hope that keeps him thinking about digging again. LOL

The squirrels where brutal in our planter baskets at the cottage Brian.  Now as soon as we plant something in them I grab a bunch of pencil thick 8-10 inch twigs and basically stick them in the pots wherever they will fit, and remove them as the plants grow. Still get the odd squirrel once in a while but I have lost zero plants since I started doing this maybe 10 years ago.

Brian, drop a moth ball or some cayenne pepper in your pots... they will stay away.

How can you have a Newfie garden w/o an old tire. Maybe a wheelbarrow tire might do you. I might have one kicking around---want me to bring it over??

I took Steve's advice and added some sharp wood spikes. Along with the steel mesh,he has not returned.

Looks good Brian. If you still have problems try leaving the spikes sticking out even further. I put in 10inch sticks and leave at least 4-5 inches sticking out of the soil. Then the furry buggers can't even walk in it.

A good rat trap and Wayne's idea of the chicken skewers would be the best solution🤔
