It was a lot of work but we got our garden planted today at the Palmer's Almanac. And all before the forecasted rain will arrive on Tuesday, which works out just fine. And some of you may be wondering what those bottles are. Well, an old Palmer family member who grew herbs in the woods once said those bottles, placed near the herbs, will keep the rabbits away. I'm sure it won't hurt to try this technique in a traditional garden. Plus, if you use Corona beer bottles it will change your whole garden's latitude. Just kidding. It will still be somewhere in the Northern hemisphere.
