Anyone starting a Victory garden? If so, what are you planting? Any tips from the pros? I am starting one, in containers, with tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce and strawberries.

Just my usual one, although Mrs n I have discussed planting some excess. #1 thing we struggle with is keeping wildlife and other animals out. Got a few other things to work on too; fruit trees, bees, fencing, barn repairs, etc. Always improve your position!

Looks like a good start. Judging from the appearance of the flora in those photos, and the fact that the sun is shining, you're a little south of me lol. It's still freezing, wet and dreary where I am. Any wisdom I could relay probably wouldn't apply!

Neighbor was throwing out bookcase, made a perfect raised platform. Need to paint it white, though.
