    Get feeling better @baymule :hugs

    Our weather is determined not to be too kind to us. The last few days were very warm (for December), but raining. Now it's lovely sunshine and dry and the temperature dropped from 14C to 7C with a cold wind. Ugh.

    I made a pot of potato soup, comfort food. It's hard to swallow, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, blowing nose. I hate this crap. Cold chills. Blech.

    That stinks!
    I'm so sorry you have this - maybe at least consider a doc visit. Last time I had something like that I had sinus infection, double ear infections and bronchitis - doc threw the whole pharmacy at me and I let him!!

    If I don't get better, I think I will. But I think this mess just has to run it's course.

    Single strand hot wire, about knee high to the average man, no baiting the wire necessary. Works every time and has worked for us for over 40 yrs.

    That poor cabbage is having a heck of a time growing for you. If I remember correctly: rain, flooding, snowstorm, and now deer!
    Looks like you have a couple of heads left though.
    Stupid deer!

    I got you beat by 3 wires, you can see all 4 wires in the last picture I posted. The electric fence was on at the time the deer got in there also :(. Oh well, I've always heard that deer love Brassicaceae, I might want to remember that if I ever have to plant a food plot.
