Journal Entry

"The deer are demolishing our garden. :( They ate 70% of the leaves off our green bean and cucumber plants, and broke off a few stalks of corn. We have to do something to keep them out.

We are eating kale, cherry tomatoes, potatoes, green beans, green peppers, collards, and we picked our first corn today.

The boys tried some pears...they are looking the right size, but are not ripe. Not sure what to do... wait? Many are falling off the tree.

The goats need access to fresh pasture. I am going to call Premier One to order the movable electric fencing we need."

Can you get some all natural repellants sold at Lowes, like Critter ridder?

Chili pepper repels almost all mammalian garden eaters.
