Deer damage

Or at least that's the only reasoning I can come up with to explain months without deer depredations then major munching the night after I made this post.

I remind myself that year one in a new property is all about infrastructure-building and learning the new lay of the land. But it still hurts when those darn four-leggers nibble on my precious plants.

For the past couple of years I reveled that the deer seemed to be steering clear of my early gardening efforts. But they then returned with a vengeance. Simple fact was that April/May/early June they seem to hide with their fawns. But then they all show up in force. Keep working on that fence! ;-D
