Gardening goal

I’m all about approaching things outside your comfort zone.  That’s how we set goals and hopefully accomplish them, right?  Anyhow, my goal this spring, summer is to experiment with gardening.  I really don’t know what I’m doing!  My grandfather and father had green thumbs.  I certainly did not inherit such a talent.  Anyhow, there was nothing better than fresh veggies from our garden.  I really want that for my family.  I love the farmers markets and local farm stands, but I would love to go to my backyard and pick my own tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, herbs etc…  I’m going to start with herbs like, basil, cilantro, parsley… Supposedly, deer and rabbits stay away from them.  The actual vegetable garden is going to be tricky and I’m guessing a lot of trial and error will take place.  The biggest concern is, how to keep the deer away!  I don’t want to use chemicals and I’m going to have to build a fence.  

For all the gardeners out there, any suggestions on how to naturally “deer proof” a  garden?  I need all the help I can get!  Also, I need to rabbit proof too, suggestions please….

  1. Awesome idea! I loved veggies from my own garden (and gardening in general), even my kids were helping… Unfortunately after the move we didn’t have time to start a new garden 🙁
    I believe the best thing to keep deer away would be to put up a fence. That’s what we did at our PA vacation house, where we get visited by whole HERDS of deer. I’m sure that would keep rabbits away too 🙂 Good luck!!
