    Home canned from your own garden is the best.

    You are absolutely right about canning. More of the joy comes in knowing that you grew the food too.

    Did the extra fencing work? My dog doesn't even know we have a garden. The squirrel's on the other hand......

    Thanks for the comment! Yes, the garden is doing really well so far. We reinforced the fencing this weekend to keep out our helpers (aka doggie diggers) to give the plants a better chance of survival.

    Hi! No one has sent you a message yet so I thought I would!! How's your garden doing so far this year? Are you getting plenty rain in Lexington?
