And this is Sarah’s morning’s work – working up two beds and planting over 200 bush beans for fall harvest. We covered the beds with chicken wire then laid the soaker hose on top. Normally the soaker hose woule be closer to the ground but there have been a few leaks here and there needing repair. Why teh chicken wire you ask? There has been a creature in teh garden almost every night disturbing the soil around roots – haven’t been able to extricate him yet. Everybody’s gotta eat. Sarah will lay bricks around the edges so he doesn’t get under the wire, then lightly mulch with straw.
