Not my garden, but rather a couple of shots of the wild turkeys that pay a visit on my sons property each morning and evening.

They come up from the wooded area out back and make their way down.

Since the house is just across the road from Independence Dam State park, there are a lot of interesting creatures running around.

That's a nice-looking monster tomato you have there, Saliha! Worth waiting for!

Sass, we're seeing more wild turkeys in suburbs closer and closer to Boston. A couple of days ago, a friend visiting me from Hawaii stopped while driving through Marblehead to take a photo of a flock crossing a main street.

I heard that they could be nasty.

They seem to be very curious and we figure they've been well established in the area.

That said, I'd never be brave enough to get close enough to find out how nasty they could be lol

Nice colors in your garden, Lee. In here all leaves have fallen already, few times we have got some snowflakes and maybe soon we get more. Garden cleaning is still going. Temperatures go under the zero at the nights, so winter is almost here.

Time for soup and stew and chili and pot roasts, Saliha. And, for you, knitting!

How is the training coming for your new career?

Training went well, it was only one week now and after few weeks it continous to the end of the year. Now I have one week vacation - a time for cleaning the garden, for cooking and of course - knitting. Right now I am knitting woolly hats.

Today I visited in the heaven... I mean in the garden market.





Beans, peas, pumpkins, tomatoes, lettuces...







Something I have tried already and also something is new like lemon cucumber, "tigerella" tomato and ramsons. Now I just have to wait that the spring starts here...

My father is pushing me to try to grow snap peas this year for the first time. For his sake, I'll give them a whirl.

A room with a view..
Looking out my bedroom window.
We've got lots of plans this year.
Ducks for the pond, veg garden.. I want herbs.
Probably near the kids play set.
With all the deer and wildlife..we'd have to watch the garden 24/7!

wildlife will reduce a garden to nubs virtually overnight. we had cats and a dog, as they dwindled it got to the point last two years I got next to nothing - the rabbits and groundhog enjoyed the garden.

stuff fresh out of the garden is always good - if you like lima beans try a batch - fresh off the vine limas are a whole different bean. peas of course, two other crops that are amazing different fresh out of the ground carrots and potatoes.

Oh we love lima beans, peas, carrots and potatoes!
The fella down the road does sweet corn and sells it roadside we hear...when the time comes.

As far as the fuzzy 4 footed varmints, hopefully all the hawks and bald eagles will take care of them...

I've had to surround half of my container plants with chicken wire for the last 3 years, to protect them from rabbits, squirrels and woodchucks.

Very annoying, but effective.

Here's my cat, Blue, near a couple of my yellow wax bean plants. The year before, my bean plants were all chewed down to the soil.

Further on down the plank, towards the top of the photo, are 4 of my tomato plants behind wire.
