They got my garden early. We have drought here. About 3 years ago now, I planted a dwarf pear. It has yet to fruit or even bloom. Why you might ask? Because every year, around the middle of June, the deer come in and eat off every single leaf. The poor tree hasn't got past 3 feet tall. The tree was fine yesterday, as were the almost ready cucumbers, the blooming melon and some other things. Today I have leafless, fruitless vines and a leafless pear tree. The deer are early this year. At least they haven't got the tomatoes.....yet. Danged deer!!!!
