Please, please ladies . . . no more sympathy. It's simply overwhelming. :cry: lol

But yeah . . . this will be an interesting experiment in thwarting these raiders. It's been over ten years since I've grown vegetables on this property. I've been planning a garden for all that time . . . just waiting for the renovation to get to this stage.

For years I've not had a problem with flowers. Just a sprinkle with hair protects them. But for vegetables the only solution I can see is to plant enuf for everybody.

And when that doesn't work?????? . . . hmmmmmm. :? lol

Am picturing that "Shot Tonite From My Deck" actually happening...maybe you can rig a water cannon buried on the fringes to startle the deer? I understand that keeping these away from edibles is a very consuming hobby for some...keep the camera handy!
