Gone with the Deer
We planted a large in ground garden this year. With tomatoes, squash, sweet corn and sun flowers for the goats. All summer we watched and waited for the sun flowers to grow and mature. They grew well, the 50 plants did well in this virgin soil. As the cooler weather came the sun flowers died and started to dry. We had plans to harvest the seed heads over the winter and feed to the goat as a special treat. Being that the growing season was over I turned off the electric fence surrounding the garden. One a bright, cool day I went out to pick some seed heads for the goats. What I found was empty stalks. Each and every seed head were gone. The deer had gone in and helps themselves to the flowers and did not even brother to say thank you! This will not happen next year!
