Louisiana, cool weather lettuces holding on despite 32 at night. I cover these if it goes lower than this. February 26 and seedlings for cool weather crops are up and at um!

Also, if you are thinking of a grape, the Concord grape in it's third year, has set grapes each year since 1st planted.  It is an awesome grape for zone 8!

The blueberries are just starting to turn blue, one at a time!  We put the bird netting over the three bushes this year, because we want to try some of the berries we are so loveingly tending :-/

I am going to replant some of the babies tomorrow and get the peas in.

I need to know what flowers are rabbit proof. I think I have my backyard blocked now. I put hardware wire 6" and more deep in a trench along the fence. I can see on the outside where they have tried to dig a couple of places. But I want to plant outside the fence. I know they don't bother my iris's and coneflower, but they ate my phlox. Does anyone know what I can plant that they won't eat?

Judith, Here are a few: snapdragon, african daisy, wax begonia, larkspur, impatiens, sweet alyssum, lobelia, nasturtium.  Got these from a book called "Gardening in Deer Country", by Vincent Drzewucki, Jr.  Good luck.  I'm not saying they are deer "proof" because deer will eat almost anything if they are really hungry, but these are usually not bothered by deer if there is anything else to eat.

Re:  FIRE ANTS.  I gave up ages ago fighting these little vicious critters.  I have found however, that a bottle of 50/50 mix with a cotton ball will reduce the sting and itching.  Trial and error there1

Question Actually.... I need to know which annual plants are deer proof!  I am tired of feeding them. LOL.  Also with the drought, I need to know which decorative/flowering plants will withstand the heat and just being watering by me.
