Deer Control update
We have been using an electric fence to keep the many deer out of our perennial garden. We had a small incursion early in the year but they must have got zapped because very little damage was done, just the wire was disturbed. The night before last was the second time that they got in and this time they ate a few of my flowers and noshed on the hosta. Given that everything is so dry here that the greenery and flowers within this area would be tempting to the dozen or so deer that live on our property, I am pleased with this control. I do faithfully plug in the fence whenever we are not actively using the garden. The plug is by the garage so it is easy to do this. We live on an acreage which is not possible to fence properly so I am pleased with this deterent. We don't have to live within a stockade and this one wire is not ugly. We have watched 6 deer browse along the outside of the fenced area without attempting to jump this fence.
