    Thats lookin pretty good. We had one the last 3 years but bought a new house and havent had time for it yet. Might get a late start on one this year... maybe. When we did, we had banana peppers, green, red and yellow peppers, cucumbers, cherry, grape and some big tomatoes. Had a few others things mixed in from season to season. We have been picking wild blackberries and apples for a few years now as well and putting them up for later.

    I am currently battling the huge amount of rabbits in our area that are hell-bent on eating everything I plant.

    This is the stupid part: They ate my strawberries, tomatoes, and cucumbers but have left the dozen heads of lettuce that are growing.

    What rabbit doesn't eat lettuce...stupid *******. I've been told it's illegal to snare them (rabbit stew!!) and the normal methods of keeping them away don't seem to do anything.
