The problem is freezer space.   I can only eat so much deer meat in a years time.  

We have a serious overpopulation of does here.

It is pretty ridiculous. You can forget about planting just about anything. The deer or raccoons just destroy everything.

If a problem develops, eliminate the problem. I have all kinds of critters too but only for a short time. Electric fence work for deer. Traps and firearms for most others. 4' chicken wire keeps bunnies out.

Ok yeah, but if the cost of building a compound exceeds the cost of a fridge full of vegetables from the farmers market....... then I'm missing the point of all of this.

You are not counting the fishing time you could dedicate to gardening instead of catching fish. You would save a lot of money on fuel, tackle.etc., so it might be profitable.  When fishing is good my garden, what I have kept anyway, tends to get a little abandoned looking.

Ness - you were three days late on lettuce  (valentines Day).:D Mine is still in the package - too wet to plant here.

You start indoors or out?

edit: oh, outdoors is likely where it’s too wet 😄

I gave up on a dry spell so today I mudded in my onions, spinach & lettuce. Looks like I got it done just before the next wet one.

Anyone got a fool proof last frost date for the rest of the stuff?
