Now the fun begins…

Before:

Posts and gate but no fencing yet

That was the vegetable garden a couple of days ago. The posts were set up, the gate frame was mounted, but the plastic fencing material was not yet attached.

After:

Gate with fencing material attached

Because the plastic fencing is hard to see, you must take my word for it. It’s there now. See the white tapes hanging at intervals in the middle of the fence? Those are there to help wildlife (and absent-minded gardeners) see the fence.

Here’s a side view to give you a better idea of what it looks like:

Fencing, side view

You can easily see the flagging tape and the fencing material.

And now I must leave you to go tackle spring planting of these beds:

Unplanted beds green with young crimson clover

That’s beat-up culinary sage in the left front corner. I’ll clean it up as soon as I’m sure freezing weather is past for good. English thyme is in the right front corner. I’ll attend to it when I deal with the sage. The green growth on the beds is young crimson clover. Often by now it is taller, but the very cold winter slowed it down considerably.

Because I’m in a hurry to get the spring veggie seeds in the ground, I’ll only clear out enough clover to get my seed rows in. The remaining clover will serve as mulch until the spring veggies are growing well.

If you need me, I’ll be out digging in the garden!
