If you read this blog last year than you know exactly what I’m talking about when I refer to the Dog Pee Garden.
Long story short, last year I planted my very first vegetable garden for my family. Little did I know that my garden was going to be a free for all for bunnies, groundhogs, snakes and the worst offenders, deer. After several attempts to keep the deer away with other suggestions by the garden experts, I finally had to use dog urine to deter them. I would have the dogs pee in a bowl and then place the bowl of pee outside of the garden. It worked and my garden grew happily ever after.
I couldn’t wait to get started on the garden this year and the first free weekend I had was last weekend so Gracie and Sherman and I got started.
Well Gracie and I got started, Sherman just goofed off with the watering can.
While he was getting acquainted with the watering can, Gracie and I were busy planting away. We had a lot of plants and seeds to plant this year since we extended the garden an extra 6 feet.
The garden this year will consist of several different types of tomatoes, cucumbers, red, yellow and green peppers, carrots, lettuce, zucchini, leeks, kale, dill, basil, and even fruit-watermelon and cantaloupe.
I’m so excited and worried about this garden.
I fear the deer and have already started with our pee routine.
While I haven’t gotten desperate enough for the pee in the bowl, I have been walking the dogs around the perimeter of the garden and letting them pee, not in the garden, just around it.
They’re doing a good job and so far so good, but the other day I saw 3 wild turkeys in my neighbors yard and I almost had a heart attack.
I have no idea what deters wild frickin turkeys.
