Garden woes

I just want to give up, but I won't.

I'm having such a hard time keeping things going. Today I watched a bird land right on a pot and try to snag a pea shoot! Grrrr. Don't these things realize this is my food.

All our lettuce that started to sprout a few days ago is gone. The bird have obviously been feasting when I'm not looking, the cats have decided that the garden is a great place to dig, and we are still having problems getting certain seeds started.

So we will be spending the weekend trying to build some raised beds, from materials lying around, that we can maybe put some chicken wire over to keep the critters out of until the plants can really get going.

I'm trying to look at this as a learning experience. By next year maybe I will have all this down pat...

This is sthe first spring I'll need to use chicken wire too. The deer, rabbits and squirrels coordinated their efforts to give me a poor harvest last year.
