    Never said I have room in my freezer! :confused: We stuffed 5 deer in them this season. Could have been 3 times that but my son is filling it on up with geese and ducks. Had 4 deer in the yard this week. Looks like a dang petting zoo around here at times! :eek:

    These two used to help me change the oil in the Super Duty.

    Your garden area looks like it'll be pretty obvious to the neighbors. Any concerns about that?
    This is Texas. There are 3.8 firearms for every person in the state. Neighbors are a might bit friendly in these parts. And I do not think that with the 7 foot fence, a mean little dog and a house full of defensive possibilities that I have to worry about watermelon thieves.

    Deer? Easy, grow alfalfa, bait the deer in, fill the freezer. Who needs beans when you have meat?

    Great thread! I picked out a spot today that I am going to turn into a garden plot. It is covered in small trees and brush right now. It is the only spot on my place that might have enough sun to grow a garden. Not sure the deer will cooperate either, but I think I'll give it a go! Will post a pic tomorrow of the site and others as I clear the plot with the skid steer.

    Yes, the desert has an abundance of sand.

    My ground is frozen solid, it'll be a while before I can get any garden started.
    It was 80 today but at least we only had 40 mph gusts of dirt.

    No chickens. EVER!!! I hate those filthy feathered rats.

    It is pretty hot here for Carrots. Onions are a winter crop. I will grow melons, okra, cukes, maters, and sunflowers. I may also put in some frijoles. (thats beans to you gringo's)
