I hate cleaning the cat litter box too.  I also have chickens and a horse with their poo too.  But to have other cats come into your garden and to do their job, not good.  I agree!

Dear leilani I have a number of cats my bed on wheels never gets used as a kittylitter, and I have the added benefit of wheeling it anywhere I want, being so tall standing height no snails either, see if you have a farmmachinerey joint near you ask to keep you a crate, I put weedmating inside fastend it and than the earth, maybe just an idea hope it helps!

I hate it too when they spray, even though I am a cat lover.  I put my cat indoors at night so she won't be attacked by critters.  Sorry Leilani

Cathy, thanks you.  Wax beans are real good.  Make sure you have something for them to climb upon.

Bob, some are from seed and some are from transplants.  I don't grow anything in pots because of the fireants.  They will find a spot, even if I have a dish under the pot.  I can manage them on the ground.  When I see a trail, I disgard them quickly because I go to my garden everyday.  Glad to see that we are having great weather now.

Worked in my 90' berm in the front.  Took all day to pull weeds, trim shrubs and sago palms.  Had a few fireants.

Things are kinda spread out but here's some quick snaps.  I'm about 1/3 planted and the rest still in pots.  All veggies from seed this year.   Lettuce and spinich about past ... letting some bolt for seeds.

I am glad you enjoyed my pix of my garden.  Yes, my garden is fenced in so that I do not have every animal around eating my hard work.

William, it sounds like we are in the same boat, no rain.  We are expecting rain today but it is suppose to come in real fast.  Meaning, it won't soak into the ground, just run off.  But rain is rain.

Sorry I've not gotten back to you.  For some reason, I'm not getting email notifications of postings to my groups any longer.   Those romas (?) look great..when did you start them from seed.. or did you buy them?    I've got about half of my toms in containers and they are getting some blossoms.  No peppers ready to go to final planting yet...thinking I started the seeds too late but we shall see.   Your garden is always top-notch and I'll get some pics up soon.  Cheers!

Well I wish we had some real rain here in Central Oklahoma. We had enough yesterday to wet the sidewalk and that was all. We are 7 inches behind in rain fall and desperately in need of rain. My Squash have all come up in the window sill and leggy like the tomatoes. I still have a month before I can set them outside safe from the frost.

Diana, what lovel pictures.  More rain today, so I will go to a meeting about dementia instead of garden work.  We had a powerful storm come through yesterday knocking power out for many people.  March is coming in like a lion for us here on the coast.

love your pics diana my dschungle isn,t as large, we do have a fairly long backyard, but most of my stuff nearly all is in pots, even my railway tree, its a native, long story cut short, a stationmaster dug it out in between running trains, it couldn,t stay where it grew and me being a greenfinger wanted it, this tree is doing well now for 16 1/2 yrs. in a washing machine bowl! it even flowered I believe they call it kurrayong! white clusters of flowers, and never disturbed its roots once , are you going to fence your veggiepatch?
