Wild flower patch extended.

I think my wildflower patch has been somewhat successful. According to the package, the basil was added to attract pollinators. I thought the smell of basil might deter deer.

It doesn't

In my garden, hanging white strips on fishing line to emulate the alarm signal of the white tailed deer does.

Last weekend I tilled 4400 sq ft of part meadow, part orchard. obviously this is too large an area to cover with tarps as I did with the patch. This area will be flame weeded, raked and flame weeded again before sowing with a perennial wildflower mix this coming weekend. Hopefully the seeds will have a month to establish before the first frost.
