Succession planting corn

Congratulations to Bladerunner, the winner of our most recent giveaway!  Bladerunner, drop me an email with your t-shirt size and we'll get your prizes out to you as soon as possible. 

Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word!  Don't despair if you didn't win --- we'll start up another giveaway before long.

Since this is a light post, I thought I'd throw in a photo I've been saving for a couple of weeks.  There's not really much to say about it, except that succession planting corn is the best way to sweeten dinners all summer long.  Sweet corn patch part two is about to hit the plate....

Our homemade chicken waterer is one of our giveaway prizes.

I have been having a major issue with rabbits recently. I have never had this problem before and thought that my dogs would keep away. I think the summer heat has made my dogs lazy. Have you had rabbit issues? How do you deter them? They come at night. I put a light outside my coop pointed at the garden but it was no help. My late corn is just coming up and they are killing it. Any ideas?

Luckily for us but unluckily for you, we haven't had any problems with rabbits. When we moved in, the farm was chock full of groundhog holes, but Lucy seems to have chased off everything smaller than a deer. We did see two rabbits in the last year, but they had Lucy in hot pursuit and they zipped across the yard so fast they had no way to nibble anything.
