Silly me

June 30, 2009 - Heather Ziegler
Silly me to believe the deer would leave my plants alone. I got up yesterday morning to find my sunflowers eaten down to the stalks and half my impatiens decimated. I was in shock. These plants are in front of the house, two feet from the front door. I bet if I look closer I will find deer fur in the chairs on the porch. They sure made themselves at home. I will now try the deer spray and we covered the hanging Topysy Turvy tomatoe plants with netting. So far so good, they did not pester the tomatoes last night. I expect the creatures to eat everything, say by the end of August, but not before the Fourth of July. Now I know how my Dad felt when he used to say, "Well, it's July 4... summer's over." He always said that even though it wasn't true. But with my plants gonr that's how I feel ... summer's over!
