Caught red handed ?

Recommended Posts

   Or should it be green faced?

Been a pretty good fall lettuce crop. So yesterday the Mrs. was picking a mess and we noticed a thief had been there. I will share but would like to be asked first. :) .  I knew who the culprit was. Put up a camera and caught the infiltrator green faced. No not the Mrs. This thief had cloven hooves and a black nose,

   The deer hunters headlights as they were going home opening day in the background as the thief feed in the front yard.

      Covered up the far bed this afternoon. Will be sleeping on the front porch tonight. Think I will wake up to the thief crunching greens in the closer uncovered bed?  Guess I should go out and shoot a deer but having too much fun chasing ducks and geese :).

Have any of you ever tried sprinklers. Not just your regular type but Like the one in the picture. I have a Hosta bed overall covers about 75 x10. These sprinklers rotate very fast hit hard and make more noise than your normal types. Believe me Deer will come a long ways for Hosta plants. They hate these sprinklers. I have not had a plant damaged behind the protection of the two I have for 2 years. I would rhink if your garden is fairly compact these would work fine. My hosta bed sit in front of a 7 ft  high stone wall.I have two because the sensing sye does not cover 360 degrees. These sprinklers will detect and sprinkle out to 60 ft.

            Old Plug yes if I was having a bad problem I would do the sprinklers. The deer usually don't mess withe the beds much. A little sharing of the greens is not hurting us right now. Growing faster than we can eat it. I know the one bed will be covered this weekend with freeze protecting covers. The taller plants in the one bed will be picked!

We rarely get a little when it comes to deer. We are semi rural out here and the buggers are about tame and have a very fruitful sex life. If they come in it might be as many as ten not 1 or 2. Then we have our share of 2 legged dears that love Bambi and regard me as a male villian. The worst one of these is the widow next door.
