    I'm hating all you people that have veggies growing so fast as mine are all struggling this year for some reason - and no shortage of well rotted horse poo!!!
    Some critter ate all the first strawberries so I think we need a higher netting fence
    Garden is coming on slowly but we seem to be back in monsoon season again today after a run of days in the 90's - I am still struggling to come to terms with the heat here
    The kiddies slide thing came with the house and we have no kiddies to use it so I'm growing honeysuckle and clematis around it

    After being gone for several days on a mini vacation and getting massive amounts of rain, I desperately need to weed my veg garden, so no pics of that today lol. It is doing well though! Will snap some pics of DD's strawberry bed, it's gone crazy! We're going to have berries coming out of our ears.

    I have a strawberry patch just off to the right of my rhubarb - they're the worst tasting strawberries ever! Birds can have em!

    That's a bummer Muppet! I need to thin out DD's something awful after this season is over, want me to ship you some plants? ;)

    We ate most of our rhubarb last week. DD in true farm girl fashion asked for rhubarb pie instead of cake for her birthday. It was so yum, I wish the strawberries would have been ready to go with it but they aren't. Rhubarb is still going so fingers crossed it doesn't go to seed before berries are ripe and I'll get to make some strawberry rhubarb jam!

    Oh gee instill have rhubarb in the freezer from last year! I did find a recipe for rhubarb and orange spread.....may have to dig it out! I tried netting my strawberries last year - I spent more time untangling birds and the. When I tasted them, well....the birds won!

    Make pie, it's yum and frozen rhubarb works pretty well (if you let it sit and drain for awhile anyway, otherwise it will be a really soupy filling) and uses a lot of it (5 or so cups diced for a single pie) so if you have excess it will use it up.

    I pinned something on pinterest about strawberries. THIS

    I wonder if would really work to keep birds away? Or am I being gullible again?

    DD wanted to do that Apachie. Haven't tried it yet though so don't know how well it works. I have a bunch of disposable aluminum pie tins around ours. I put a few of the electric fence posts around it, string between and tied the pie tins on to it.

    That's what kids are for! I have plenty of painted rocks and there's no bird problem out here..... not quite sure WHY I have painted rocks but I do!
