    corn, potatoes, peas, beans, cabbages,onions, pepper (s), cucumbers, many types of melons, eggplant, carrots.
    Berries: Blueberry, strawberries, blackberries

    @rayvt1 …Hey Ray and Linda, what will you be planting?……..Donald

    Donald, Here in Texas, the weatherman says tomorrow, we are to get yet another snow storm…. I think when I moved here nf rom Nevada 6 months ago, I may have made another geographical error. HOWEVER the rest of the week and weekend are to be back up into 60s. Maybe I will be able to get my started seeds into the ground.This year we will begin with about an acre planted and see what success we have. Using your videos as our reference library.
    Ray and Linda Van Tassell,

    @rayvt1 … Wish I could loose about 150 lbs. myself. Rain started about 11 AM with some snow, ice and really cold temps for the rest of the week. I’ll be crying for rain in the summer but for now I’ve got enough……Donald

    LOL Donald two years ago, I was 325 pounds, now 205 and have another 25 pounds to go. Why is t anything which taste good, is bad for you?,,,This years garden lost of tomatoe plants so I can do up lots of Chow Chow, and corn relish….WE have today had rain, snow, hail, and sleet. That puts some damping on gardening; as garden area is a float. By the way a good weed and grass killer for drive ways is box of salt, 1/4 bottle dawn soap and bucket of water, shake and spray..kills everything.

    @rayvt1 … It’s like two different worlds. Nice to have friendly neighbors that help each other. Watch out eating all the good food, you may gain some weight. LOL…….Donald

    Donald, we moved here 6 months ago, and we have found everyone over here super friendly. I built a 16×24 woodworking shop for my wife, and every day my neighbors were there to help. When we needed something (tool) as mine were still in boxes somewhere, they would loan me theirs, bring us new food to try (sweet potato pie, hush puppies, etc) Now I am helping one of them build their 36×16 shop) In Nevada I could be laying outside dieing and they would set over me. Love it here

    @rayvt1 … neighbors today aren’t like the neighbors I grew up around. Everyone knew each other and helped each other out, it’s not like that anymore. Some call it progress. LOL……..Donald

    When I had my garden in NV, the deer were a major problem, so I took a cheap security light and hooked up a boombox in garden area. At night when deer visited, they tripped the light and the boombox came on, scared the deer away. Worked till the only neighbors called police and reported it was waving them as well. Why did not they speak to me…..Puzzled..great neighbors….NOT

    I was able to keep critter’s from eating on my crope by putting hair clipping’s on them
    I went to a Barber shop and got them
    it worked like a charm

  15. webcajun says:

    @pafl2009 … the hot peppers may help, just how much I really don’t know……..Donald

  16. pafl2009 says:

    Donald, what are your thoughts on using this mixture to keep critters (deer, rabbits, groundhogs, etc) out of the garden.
