Thoughts in the Vegie Patch

It's rather cold here today, which is rather strange given it was so hot the other day and we are only a month away from the start of Summer...... however that does make it rather good going out in the garden.  I got home from a morning walk to find 3 of my hens had decided they liked digging in the vegie patch...... the beans just coming up seemed to be popular!!!  Obviously they were no longer taking notice of the small low fencing Pete had placed around it a couple of years ago.........
so while Pete was busy getting frames made so we can net the fruit trees
 

I pulled out the roll of wire that has been sitting in the shed and began the task of making the fence higher....... of course it was not long when I had to make the decision of whether or not to put in a couple of new posts and fence in the recently established boysenberry patch which sits to one end of the vegie garden........ the raspberry patch garden sits up the opposite end of the vegie garden, also outside of it and so I figured it made sense to put in a few new posts and enclose the whole lot!
Unfortunately I ran out of wire after making it to the raspberry patch....... so Pete helped me put up a makeshift bit of wire until I get to the hardware shop tomorrow after work to purchase another  roll.
  I have an "added" garden, as you can see above,  which I put in on the outside of the fenced vegie patch (the small black fencing) when I ran out of room....... last year it just had potatoes growing in, so it wasn't a problem with the chooks too much....... but this year I have some zucchini's, cucumbers, some lemon balm, and sunflowers in it.  I'd also like to plant a couple more things in there, so I will be fencing that off now as part of the vegie patch.   I may also put in a little gate near the raspberry patch too if I can, so we can access it from up there.
Anyhow, during my few hours fencing and digging holes and such..... I got to thinking about my blogging...... I got to wondering about the fact that I have this blog and my original blog http://countryfragrance.blogspot.com  where I still do the majority of my blogging.  Originally I was looking to use this one to head in a different direction, but the two are so closely connected because they are me, my home, my family, my beliefs............ I'm thinking I should just combine the two of them together so that I'm blogging it all to the one place........ I'd like to hear your thoughts, those of you who happen to follow me here....... or there.......or both places........ or perhaps my blogging has had so many gaps my "followers" have given up and moved on lol  I could understand that, which is part of the reason I'm thinking I should just go back to the one blog.
I pray you have all had an enjoyable Sunday,
Sharm

It seems no matter where we live, the vegie patch seems to be a magnet for fauna...my problems are the bush turkeys and the possums. :-)
