We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

You know when you say to yourself that you should pick that lettuce and then you say--umm I can do that tomorrow. One should rethink that because the deer may get to it before you do and that is what happened to me. I had a large pot of lettuce on the patio just read to be harvested and the deer took advantage of it. When will I learn. Well at least I have lettuce in the raised bed and they can't get to that.


  1. Unfortunately that's the fact of life here - nothing on the patio is safe. Only garden is semi-safe with a very tall fence. But if they really want to reach something it won't stop them from leaping right over it.

  2. I can't believe they come so close to the house to eat off the patio, but I hear of it all the time.

    1. I had one at the front door that was eating my potted impatients.
