Deer Zapper update

Deer Zapper close up of burned leaf

Anna noticed more deer damage to the sweet potatoes on her morning tour.

"Not the ones by the Deer Zapper though....right?"

Turns out a leaf grew just tall enought to touch the electrical wire, which burned the leaf and disarmed the Zapper.

Maybe I should have installed the wire a bit higher. Perhaps some adjustable legs so that we can raise it up as the plants grow.
