The deer circle my garden each night....

rayinpenn(6)July 20, 2012

The deer circle my garden each night like sharks around a life raft. Pity the poor plant that leaves a lim outside the raft. They show no mercy.

Join Americans for the re-introduction of the Grey Wolf. Yes we will loose a jogger or two but there are no perfect solutions.

I was worried about deer when we first moved to the woods of Georgia. None yet. Ironically in town the community garden had a double electric fence to keep them out!

Can't see the whole garden but can you put up another fence with say a 10-15 ft space between the existing fence? Where a couple of dogs could live?

Or trellis UP the vines escaping the fence boundary?

Looks like my garden. Start hunting this winter. They are nothing more than high heeled tiara wearing rats with an entitlement complex.

have they started the hoarse raspy laugh from the edge of the woods. I have grown to hate that sound.

I use human urine to keep them at bay. Twice the rain came in & the smell was washed away was lost.
Other then a nibble or two, my garden doing great.
