My husband is a wonderfully, talented gardener. Right now, we have three garden spots, besides fruit trees and blueberries. Once I'm able, I'll post pictures of the gardens.

My husband spends many hours taking care of the plants he is growing. In one wide row, he has planted cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts etc... He placed a pvc frame around the row and then we placed webbing, (a special white fabric that keeps moths off the plants and keeps direct sun from wilting the plants) over the top of it and secured it in place.

When I left to go do some errands, our neighbors' dogs were over in our yard. They have two adult beagles,two beagle puppies, and a pit/mix puppy that we call Baby (real name Scottie) because it is SO CUTE! We have to try to chase them away, because they eat our cats' food and tear up our garden. We HATE doing it because they are so sweet, and Harry, I, and the kids love animals so much. Well, when we returned, we found holes in the webbing.  When my husband looked closer, he discovered that the puppies had gotten into the plants and had demolished some of them! It was so frustrating to see. We have the best neighbors in the world. We don't want to have to tell them what happend to our garden and have them tie the dogs up. I wish there was a way to keep them out of the garden, and still have them come over to play. We especially love Baby. She is so affectionate and her big brown eyes just melt you. She'll come over and just plop right in your lap and wait to be petted. Why does life have to be so difficult?....Why do puppies have to be so cute?! :D  Oh the drama ;p
