Mr Potato Head

 PATTY:  Today we harvested our potato crop.  What Sabryin is holding is a $4 potato.  Granted, it IS an organically grown potato.  The problem was that three times in the last six weeks critters have eaten the tops off the potato plants.  We got less than three pounds (see photo below).  

We have lots more tomatoes and okra and haven't harvested the sweet potatoes yet, but that's all the taters we are gonna get.  Disappointing, to say the least; but not discouraging.  We'll be doing it again next year, but we will definitely be fencing and bunting the area. 

BHU:  Wake me up when you start harvesting the tuna. 

PATTY:  Have a great weekend efurryone!  xxoo

My mommy just gave up. The raccoons and O'Possums and deer just decimated her efforts and scared me in the process. I screamed in the night to mommy for help when I spotted them ruining our little garden. xox

A local man and published horticultural photographer, uses only natural products to keep bugs away. He makes soap mixtures with ivory soap to keep bugs away, as well as sprinkling Wondra flour on plants for the same reason. Of course it has to be repeated often. To keep deer away, he drives a stake in the ground near the plants being eaten and then hangs half a bar of Ivory soap on rope/heavy twine from it, after drilling a hole in the center. Nothing gets eaten. He also makes garlic solutions to spray on some plants.
