I wandered out to the garden last night to discover, much to my annoyance, that deer had eaten off 16 of my 27 tomato plants. GRRRR!!! It looks like they stuck their heads into the cages like a big salad bowl. DOUBLE GRRRR!!!
I've still got a few little seedlings that I didn't set out- my 'backup' plants but I'm thinking that I'm not going to end up with the variety I planted since I had more seedlings of some varieties than others. But at least we'll have something. I just hope I don't have to resort to buying tomato plants this year. I'm going to have to figure out a deer repellant system.
I just hope when I head out this morning that they haven't eaten any more.
But amazingly, they didn't bother the peppers or eggplants. I've had trouble with deer before but only with lettuce. In all my years of gardening I haven't had trouble with deer eating my tomatoes. sigh....
