We don't have that many sunny spots in our yard. You'd think we'd get to a point where the gardening would be done. For some reason, every time I check something off the garden list, something else gets added. Wait, there's a little more room in that corner. Or, I think that spot may actually be sunny enough for another berry bush. My wish list is long. Maybe first I need to be successful with what I have planted. My lettuce has not been impressive this year, despite patiently growing them from seed. I haven't even picked any spinach because it's been so small.
On the plus side, the veggie garden is more protected. There's a new fence with features to make even the groundhog steer clear. And, we have a fox now. Well, we have a fox that stops by at least weekly to bark at our dog. The fox barks, not Loki. It's a very strange noise. Hopefully a resident fox will make little critters think twice about coming near our yard and stealing our plants. It hasn't stopped the squirrels, though. They've already been taking bites out of our green strawberries and leaving them around the yard.
I hope we get some red strawberries soon. I've held off on buying the ones in the grocery store in anticipation of the ones growing in my yard, but I'm getting impatient.
