From Virginia/Maryland’s WUSA 9 News:
_Gardener Chris Ervin grew tired of his annual battle with the estimated 50 deer that flock to his property at night to destroy shrubs and vegetables.
_Then one afternoon while mowing the lawn and admittedly inspired “by a couple of beers”, Ervin says he came upon an inexpensive solution.
_”Caution tape,” he marveled as he viewed his pristine plot of corn, beans, melon, collard greens and squash surrounded by plastic tape.
Yes, the garden looks a bit like a crime scene, but the raiding deer have left the plot alone for two seasons running.
I wonder–a couple beers, or a few?
Sounds like it works for Chris, but I’m not sure I’d want my neighbors seeing my yard surrounded by crime-scene tape and gossiping: “I wonder who Dave killed and buried in the garden. I always knew he was a little off.”
Fifty deer? I’d like to get Chris’ permission to bowhunt his garden.
Anyway, check out the full article and tell us what you think.
