    Great garden this year!

    As some of you know, I use the Back to Eden method of farming and have turned my red clay into a black, rich and loamy soil. Over the winter I amended my corn plot with the chicken manure everytime I cleaned the chicken coop. Well my corn has outdone itself so far! So has the garlic.

    Very impressive.

    Question: As we are both in GA and suffer from the same plague of possums and raccoons, does the fence actually work well enough? I am assuming your are somewhat rural like I am. (I know about assumptions)

    Also, like the greenhouse!

    Yes I am somewhat rural although Columbus is steadily moving out this way! The fence is to keep the chickens out. I have never had any trouble with raccoons or possums, have never even seen one on my land although I know they probably are. Last year when I planted the corn the chickens followed after me and picked out most of my seed. I got no corn at all last year due to them. The one pest that I do have a problem with is a rat snake that lives in the henhouse. After repeatedly removing it down to the creek I have finally called a truce and just agree to share the eggs with it

    Nice looking corn patch! Tell us more about your back to eden techniques.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Nice corn patch there, Sherrynboo!

    We lived outside Cartersville Ga. when I was 5 until I was 8. At one place we lived there, we had a neighbor man named Bud. He grew the most fantastic garden I've ever seen. He grew corn at least 7 foot tall. He had green beans growing with the corn, and the vines would climb the corn stalks. It was amazing to a 7 yo kid.

    This reminds me, I have some pics of a farm festival we went to somewhere in North/Central Ga. A bunch of old restored tractors and such. Pics were taken in 1961 or so. I'll start a post on it.

    I would love to see those old photos of those old tractors and the like!
