So we finally got the garden planted, and things are looking pretty well established. We also turned the chicken coop around and built them a run along the end of the house. Next on the to-do list is sod! Here are some new pics:

Dustin built this for the peas and beans to grow on

And Dustin built a "hallway" and gate so the chickens have an area that keeps them out of the garden. I love how he tapered the pickets down to the coop.

So good to see your garden again! Looks like you have been seriously busy. Is that netting or mesh that he built for the peas to grow on?? Wondering b/c I need to do something for mine.
