A Photo Essay: My Tiny Garden

I’m not happy with my deer friends. Earlier this week, they dug up my petunias and a mini-rose bush, ate the blossoms, and then noshed on my lettuce. Deer tracks are all over the garden! Despite the deer invasion, I’m having fun watching the flowers and vegetables grow.

Enjoy the photos!

    I thought you would enjoy my story. I purchased five acres of land outside La Veta Colorado some years ago. I wanted to build a straw bale house. The vacant land in the town of La Veta have the most beautiful flowers and ice plant blooms and I wanted some on my land. When I got up to Denver I purchased about $20 of small plants to get the flowers started on my land. You guessed it. A week later after planting them I went down to the land to camp and they had all been eaten. My daughter still teases me to this day that I provided a very expensive salad for the wild deer.

    Lovely photos! We have not deer but squirrels in our suburban garden and they love to fling dirt from my container gardens and, in return, leave me a peanut just beneath the surface of the dirt still in the pot.

    Tammy. I have deer troubles too. so frustrating. it makes it safer for the plants if you have a fence. I don’t think my plants would survive here if I did not have one. This year the bear has been climbing my deck and ruining a 14 year old jasmine plant and exposing it for the deer to eat. We also had a coyote couple raise their pups in our yard for a about a month this spring. So fun to observe. however, An element of awareness because I have small domestic animals I want to protect. I love the forest! It has been fun seeing your Big views out of your tiny house. I still think of planning a trip to meet you. We are neighbors you know πŸ˜‰ I am in Nevada city-about 5 hours from you. Oh, and don’t you just loooove the magazine Taproot! I just finished a few articles in the Breathe issue-catching up. Just wonderful for a cool 83 degree windy day. be well. stacy
