Our first harvest has come in!
One pepper ... and one red tomato!!
And, it looks like there is more to come - although the strawberries were decimated, and the parsley gnawed to the stems, the tomatoes and most of the peppers are big and heavy with fruit. And although they're still green and unripe, we have great hopes that they will make it to our table this year.
We put up a well-constructed fence, but when even that failed to deter the groundhog and the deer, it was time to get serious. It was time to get the Contech Electronics Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler.
Witness it in action:
And since putting in the sprinkler, our garden has been unmolested, and we dare to hope that we might actually get more than 3 tomatoes this year.
