This is our tiny veg garden in the foreground at The Shire. Katie's much larger garden is in the background, and their herb garden is on the left. Tim, Katie, and Jimmy have been gracious enough to let us try out veg gardening on their land, using organic seeds and soil. The high-quality fence, constructed by A&S Graham landscaping (i.e. Adam and I) is made from raspberry canes and jute, and those are little bars of very stinky soap which Annie and I made hanging around it, which will hopefully keep the deer away from our freshly sprouted lettuce. We've also planted green onions, carrots, and pumpkins. Mmmm. We'll be checking on it tomorrow, so hopefully things will still be intact!
