Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
The garden this summer and fall has been a wash. We've had a drought and the water I put on it didn't seem to help, so I stopped. And we have dogs in the back now, who have their own level of impact.

When the rains return I'm going to dig up the bed for onions and rim it with old fence supports and make a raised bed. I'll put chickenwire around it to keep the dogs out. In the next year I'm going to have to bite the bullet and decide how I want to zone this large pie-shaped yard and go ahead and put in a few concrete edges around where I want the compost, a dog run, etc. Until it rains I might as well try digging in concrete.

We're still eating last winter's onions and garlic. They've been great, and I have tomatoes in the freezer from last spring.

I wonder what Bobert is doing this fall, what with all of the moving and transplanting? I hope he stumbles upon this thread and fills us in.
