    Have you ever tried deer repellant? It sure stinks ( my kid sprayed some in the hardware store once ) wonder if it works...

    The best deer repellent is hunting . They will not show up if you hunt . Drive down the road and they come running . This has really happened to me . I was bow hunting on my acreage and saw nothing. Came out of the woods near the house and the police were out front at the scene of a deer accident . [​IMG]

    Its not the idea that they are stealing produce its that they are on your property and stealing.
    You can protect you're home and property.

    Our state says if a deer is eating your crops you can not shoot them unless you make a living farming so if you are just planting a garden for your own purpose's you will go to jail for 10 days with a $1000.00 fine and will never be allowed to hunt again We have very strict laws here in Pa. And the funny thing is We are over run buy the deer and they limit the license sales Pa. Has the most stupid laws and regulations . Just tonight I seen about 30 deer in one field and a few more in a 6 mile stretch . When their is a road kill buy the house I know that deer has my veggies in his stomach . And the nerve of some people stops by my apple trees at the end of the property and scoops up the apples just to take home and feed the deer.

    ''So bambi I do know you are fed real good and hunting season is coming I hope you learned a good lesson when you are on my supper table.''

    Yeah I'm in Australia. The cold won't be a problem soon enough, it's just a matter of keeping them covered on cold nights. It's starting to really warm up now, so I'm not that worried about frost anymore.

    The McIntosh apples are done, but the Cortlands are taking their sweet time to finish ripening. Lovely red orbs, though. The ones that hit the ground get demolished by the field rabbits.

    We did a trial run of our cider press. It's a Raw Rules stainless steel model. Got some lovely juice (about a quart), which we promptly bourbonized and enjoyed.
