What ever happened to that garden anyway?

Ok, none of these are going to do it justice, BUT, here are some photos of the work we've been doing on Plot 55, our little rectangle of the community garden.  Taking advantage of D being around this week, we've been clearing out the junk and putting up a fence to keep the deer out.
There are four long beds, which you can kind of see in the photo above, and the dimensions of the plot are 14.5' by 18', which will hopefully not overwhelm us!  We planted a few cloves of garlic and some daffodil bulbs in the fall, which are giving us a bit of a green corner, but we cannot wait to put more things in!  The frost date is in late April, but we have been assured that we can put in broccoli, cabbage, peas, and greens...
D and E are fixing cross bars on the outside of the netting we secured today.  Apparently deer won't jump over a fence if they can feel it but not see it very well. We're also in the middle of the garden, with many luscious yards of vegetables surrounding us, so hopefully they'll be so distracted that they won't even bother with little ol' Plot 55.

It doesn't look like much, but we are giddy.
