Oh my goodness! Our garden has been extremely productive this year. I have been freezing and canning vegetables and fruit almost every day since mid July.There are so many variables in gardening. There is the weather,bugs and critters to deal with. Our entire garden is fenced with a 10 foot fence.To keep deer out. This year we also added new fencing near the bottom to keep rabbit and woodchucks from burrowing under. The weather has been favorable with frequent rain and sunny bright days in between. The insects have not been too bad.Soon I will be sowing a Fall crop of spinach and lettuce.
