The lady across the way has a son who is absolutely desperate for work and I'm desperate for space soooo I had him come over and for $150 he ripped out all these nasty forsytias and yews that the previous owners had planted on the SOUTH (read sunny) side of the house and I now have a bed about 25'x6' with full sun!!!!! Heee Heee I'm so happy!!!!!!! He's coming back on Mon and is going to limb up 2 tulip trees all the way to the very top (G-d willing he'll kill 'em) and that will give my other beds more sun and if G-d is with me get rid of the tree root problem. And you'll never believe this! Once they pulled out all the bushes all along the interface between the foundation and the siding OMG were fist size termite thingys and carpenter ant thingys!!!! They must have moved in just before we bought the house because they didn't show up on the termite inspection, but we did have them and got rid of them but they must have moved in soon after but before we got the centricon. I'm just so thrilled over the fact that I now have a great place for my tomatoes, eggplants and peppers although I'll have to do some really aggresive crop rotation. Oh! I am so very, very happy!

I feel your happiness, yehudith. Good luck with your new found place to grow in.

I have a nice area in my front yard that gets full sun, but I know if I planted it, the deer and rabbits would feast on whatever grew there.

We have a horrible problem with deer here. They come right up to the windows and eat out of the flower boxes while you watch. My friend uses Liquid Fence and it really works. She has a stand of hosta that belong in the botanical garden and they don't go near it. You can use it on food crops and its organic.
