Well, finally some sunshine! Planted 12 cabbage plants today - in the pool bed - 6 early, 6 late.

My cold little garden has been shivering but finally seeds are germinating. One of my worries now is to keep the quail from dining on the buffet of fresh peas - they like the plants at about 2" - just walk along the row and gulp them down.

Fixed the neighborhood cats! Put chicken wire down on all the beds. The die hards walk thru the beds but can't dig.

Have a lot more I could plant but where does the time go? Monday we are going to buy pepper and tomato plants. I seed my zucchini, spaghetti squash and hubbarb squash, broccoli, etc.

Happy gardening!

never thought about chicken wire~ what a great idea! My husband hasn't started planting yet~ but I think he's gonna try and plant some flowers today. Happy gardening to you.

Thanks, Kim. The wire works well because the plants just grow up thru it.
