Nice produce, it's always great to see. I've been hanging around this forum so long I'm telling the same stories over and over again.....
I'm kind of the unofficial caretaker here, for the last 20 years. My friend and landlady has a tendency to allow a garden in the spring and then complain how it looks at the end of the season. The deer in this area are well fed and overpopulated. So, one year I had a makeshift fence put up around a small 15 x 15 garden. Sure enough, she wanted the eyesore gone. I could have just stalled for time; but got mad. I had regular 6' snow fence stakes holding up the wire mesh fence all around. I got my 95 Jimmy, hooked a chain to the corner post, and drove across the field with 60' of fence, posts, weeds behind me! Hahahahahhaah I was furious, but it was actually an efficient way to remove the garden! There was a dumpster here at the time, I threw it all in
Another year I had another sharecroppers peasant garden going very well in the spring. One morning I looked and the entire garden was gone. Deer got in, it looked like Hiroshima
On another attempt, I had steel snow fence posts, 15x15 area again, wire deer fence 6' high and chicken wire the first 3' up. Really hacked together but found materials at no cost. I made the corner gate out of 2x4's and the hinge was the wire fence itself.
This garden was doing well, mostly tomatoes, and one day I looked down the field and a doe was nudging her snout into the gate. I was mad, and started walking toward the doe. She got spooked, and somehow pushed her way into the garden. I kept walking toward the garden and that doe freaked out. She was bouncing around in the garden, back and forth, hitting the fence. She put her snout down low and charged the back of the garden. I swear, her snout got caught under the bottom of the fence, and her entire body flipped up and over the fence! This all happened in about 5 seconds!!!
I thought, "Well at least she's on the outside of the garden now." The fence was all crushed, I went to look and the doe was lying on the ground looking at me. I thought she was just knocked out, but she had broken her own neck. I couldn't locate anybody to come and harvest her; so I dragged her into the woods and buried her in a serial killer grave that I dug with the rototiller!!!
Now I just get produce at the local farm store but there's always hope for next season
