Gluten-Free Organic Garden Update
Our garden is off to a great start. All of the seeds germinated well, the seedlings are growing, and we have even been harvesting the quick growing salad greens for fresh organic salads. The greens taste so crisp and flavorful when they are freshly picked and consumed with a few vegetables topped with a healthy dressing.
Many of the herbs have been used for cooking and some of the transplanted strawberry plants have produced berries. The berries are so juicy, no sugar is required. As well, medium sized blueberry bushes that we purchased from a heritage sale have lots of green berries that will eventually turn blue. My children seem to be enjoying the process of watching everything come to life in the garden and are asking many questions about the plants and how long we will have to wait to eat everything, especially the berries.
Our two bunnies haven’t taken an interest in the plants, but our Australian Sheppard is quite interested. Unfortunately, she is attracted to the smell of the mushroom manure and is digging holes throughout the garden. We are not really sure how to distract her from her persistent interest in this soil, we thought we may put some soil in another area of our yard to distract her (it will be her area) from the garden. A small fence around the garden may also help to deter her from this area. Hopefully, these strategies will work. Have you had problems with pets in the garden? If so, how did you deter pets from taking an interest in the garden?
