Garden Fence

I finally got the fence and gate finished, as you can see from the picture (click for a larger view).  You can also see that the garden is almost empty.  Between Debra's injured ankle (severe sprain) and my procrastinating on the fence, we didn't get to plant much:  only onions and potatoes.  And the deer mowed down the potatoes to the point that we might not get a crop this year.  It's too hot now to plant anything else, so we'll just maintain the onions and the remainder of the potatoes.  Come late August, though, we'll be ready for a full-blown fall garden.  That's one benefit of living in this part of the country:  we can get two crops a year—sometimes three, I hear, if you plant just the right things at the right times.
