    Hey Tammi. I voted for you and then missed your Farmer of the Day day. Congratulations on that! Good job keeping the dogs out of the gardens. I wish a fence would keep out the squirrels. They're the ones that are making a mess in my gardens.

    My husband just built the raised beds this past summer and the iron fence went in then too. It's much easier to take care of now that the dogs can't join in the digging. I still have to cover the beds when the chickens are out...butter lettuce seems to be one of their favorites!

    Wow! What a tidy garden. Is it newly built?
