I did plant the smallish ground plot down at my dads end of the property this year. The beans didn't do well and the deer ate half of my okra plants already. sigh. Hopefully those deer will be thinned out during the next hunting season. Last year we had at least 12 deer living on the property. They ate most of our pears and my whole garden plot we planted down at my dads end of the property. I planted the plot down at my dads end of the property this year knowing we only had about 6 deer left after hunting season living on the property now. If they finish off the plot down there again this year, I will not replant it.
The raised beds have done well last year and this year. The soil is so rich that the plants just really get huge. Especially the tomato plants. I have to keep cutting them back.
I pray you are enjoying your gardening and farming this year! Blessings and happy farming.
