Oh Deer!

Posted on July 24, 2012


I stopped to water my garden on the way to work today, and was saddened/angered/seriously bummed to find that 2/3 of my carrots were missing.  Judging by all the prints, the deer enjoyed themselves last night.  I snapped a picture with my phone, lest any of my fellow gardeners skeptically suggest it was the work of bunnies.  I pulled out the stragglers whose tops but not bottoms had been eaten and took them to work with me.  On my way home I dusted the survivors with cayenne.  We’ll see what’s left tomorrow.

See all the little(ish) deer prints?

How do you go about keeping deer out of your garden?
