We are looking at about 150' by 125' (about a half acre) for the garden this coming year. Size is about triple last year.
Been there, done that... learned to downsize. Wound up with more leftovers than the chest freezer, friends, family, and work could consume. Once you fill your first bathtub with tomatoes and make a few dozen jars of sauce you may scale back too... then again, our growing season may be longer than yours. Even in North Georgia, tilling was by feb/March depending on water content, plants in the ground by or before early April, killing freeze around Thanksgiving.

Paused the work on fabricating the '47 Chief fender mounting brackets so's i could create a template to show me just how much of that fender had been cut away in its previous life. Turns out to be an estimated 8 inches of curve were removed at some point. Thinking maybe an accident as the body of the fender is solid and dent/rust free so if not an accident then maybe some ancient attempt by a former owner to make his ride look "cool" by bobbing the front fender. it was a popular thing to do around 60 years ago, but it leaves me with the problem of where to find a donor from which to harvest that missing section so that I can re-attach it, or least re-attach some of it. Finding a whole one is bad enough, about along the line of finding a good unmolested or sun damaged headliner for a station wagon in the salvage yard, but finding a junker that I can use as a donor, well where's that chicken so's i can grab its teeth! I like the bob but would have taken less....just me and my personal preferences.

Yeah, I'm curious about your plans for critter abatement as well. There are plants and herbs that can be planted in with the veggies that will deter some varmints from trying to score a free meal but the only thing a deer will respond well to is a deer slug in the A** And they are perfectly capable of jumping a fence as much as 6 feet or taller. They'll even rear back on their hind legs and sort of stand up erect to try and access the lower branches of a tree. That's why a lot of pine and spruce have no lower branches, the deer consumed them.

If you went with the combination of berm and moat or ditch that the romans used to create around their forts, that might work as the deer would jump the fence and land in the moat or clear the moat but crash into the berm. Deer are not stupid, just obstinate and about as single minded as a pigeon; basically rats with antlers.

Fence on the outside. Sharpened spikes on the inside. If they're dumb enough to jump it fresh venison and eggs for breakfast.
