Deer proofing the garden
I planted hollyhocks near the mailbox. First thing this year the neighbor, with good intentions, whacked a few of them with the weed whacker. I had to admit that it looked a lot more tidy after his ministrations.
Unfortunately, the deer found the remaining hollyhocks very tasy. That thing that looks like green sticks is what is left of my hollyhocks. First they ate the blossoms at the top, the next night they came back and ate all the leaves. There are a few buds left, if I fertilize them and mix up some "Hinder" do you think they will leave them alone?
