I am really getting sick of my garden being eaten!!!!! This year I have had a small garden, with mostly squash, pumpkins and tomatoes. I knew my tomatoes would need a fighting start against the HORDES of deer we have come through our yard every evening. (Unfortunately, my garden seems to be right in their path.) So I sprayed them down with some "Liquid fence" That has worked in the past. But, I wonder if my bottle is old because all the tops were eaten off. I know this isn't caterpillars either... I have had those before. This is something BIG! I HAVE NEVER HAD PROBLEMS with something eating MY PUMPKIN PLANTS! I go out to weed my garden last night after the baby was asleep, and ALL the large rather spiky leaves were eaten!? I didn't know anything would eat those. Now I am depressed because my measly garden that was just starting to actually produce something has been ravished. Is it the deer? Would they eat my pumpkin plants? Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the deer away? (Preferably not something I have to spray on my plants) I would love to have as many ideas as possible, as my husband and I are planning on having a large garden next year. Thanks!!!
