Today I finally put up the bird netting for my berry enclosure. I attached it with 1 inch binder clips to the electrical conduit frames that I put up a couple days ago. Now my blueberries, raspberries and strawberries will be safe from the evil Cat birds. They will sit in a tree and mock me while I am out gardening. Three years ago before I put the bird netting up they would swoop down right next to me while I was picking my raspberries and snatch one off the canes. Bold birds.

Then I also raked out the rest of my raised garden area. Here I had some of Mel's Mix, leaves and a big pile of compost dumped on top. It was all mixed in and it spread out to an area about 10 X 7 and one foot deep. I had a ton of seeds from prior years so I planted three rows of pole beans, a bunch of cantaloupes, pumpkin and then just sprinkled left over lettuce, carrots, radish, marigolds and another random seed that I cold not remember. I covered with straw (ornamental grass trimmings) and watered. I am giving them two weeks and what ever doesn't grow I plan on buying transplants. It was really just random.
