D is expanding to the outside of the garden, tilling outside the fence probably for squash and pumpkins next fall (I think). Left side.
This is one side of the gate, just need to ensure the post is square, then build the second gate and hang. Then we won't be unrolling the fencing roll every time we go in/out of the garden. Those pesky deer. This year, as well as last, the bunnies have been staying out, it isn't a bunny fence, but maybe a deterrent?
So, as if this wasn't enough space for this year, here is the additional "tillage" done by D this summer. It was the "old garden" from our first year here before our newer fenced one. This is much more in the shade so should be better for spinach, etc. The cut up straw was from the bales we had insulating the chicken tractor this winter. Need some strong manure to break that stuff down quickly.
The Helenium flower is blooming! It's other name is Sneeze Weed, but it doesn't smell bad to us and hasn't made us sneeze yet. I love the vibrant colors it has. Hmmm... more orange!
