    Its that time of the year again
    I've revamped my entire garden.
    I took out the overhead sprinkler system and added all drip irrigation.
    I tilled everything back under, still have 18 inches of horse manure, but added 6 inches of sheep manure and tilled together over the beds.

    I also am making heavy duty plant towers, or panels out of cattle panels.

    Moved my irrigation valves to the inside of the trellis
    added several inches of Oak chips to the gully walkways, and under the main trills walkway.
    added a nice layer of composted mulch to the tops of the beds.

    Installed some new germination shelving and new LED lighting.
    using germination bins at room temperature of 77 - 78 degrees.

    Planned out a large selection of my favored veggies to plant.

    Great video. Unbelievable amount of attention and effort going in to that massive garden. Looks like you will have enough to be setting up your own market for the neighborhood. The thought of working in the yard or doing a garden make me ill Smiley Laughing018::1
    BTW, FarmnGardenFlorida.com is still available.Smiley Laughing021::1

    Lot a work goes into a plot like that. The rewards are worth the efforts. Might even attract a little "fresh meat " to the back yard if you know what I mean.
    Works up here.
    Damn deer sneak in and eat everything.
    Course, that does have it's , "incentives"

    It won't be long now, installing fencing and Gates now, to keep the deer, rabbits and other rodents out. It's starting to look like something good is coming
    I needed to put a 5ft fence with 7ft cable above the fence on all my gardens because everything would be gone overnight.

    In this area the State has been doing a restoration project up here attempting to bring back the Chestnut Trees.
    Small fenced in areas with pvc pipe around all the new starts.
    Tall fences , noise makers , and just about anything to keep the animals off them.
    Between the ground hogs that tunnel in , the deer that jump the fence or sneak under it at low spots, and the idiots that cut the fence because they feel like they just have to be in there,
    Most of the plots look like an abandon lot with weeds growin around the pvc pipe and a tall fence around it.

    I tell ya , any creature that wants to have a taste of what your puttin your hard work into, can become a problem.
    You have a great deal of work into your plot, and it really does look good.
    I might be inclined to hook the welder up to that top wire if I was in your spot. ( on a need to basis of course )

    That and a large smoker / grill to complete the garden layout ya know.

    Good growin to ya
