Spud thanks for the great video. Deer are my #1 frustration. They can and do take a plum or app,e or pear tree that you have nurtured for 3 years, and eat it to nothingness overnight. Rabbits ate all ofmy onions. According to the book they wont eat onions, but I've had trouble teaching my rabbits to read. i dont mind moles too much but the damn voles are like underground or ground level deer.

Now most of my young trees have a circle of fencing 5 feet high. In a narrow space, my deer dont jump the fence so far. Foe voles, I wrap young trunks with 1/4 inch hardware cloth. Next project is chicken wire boxes on the raised beds for veggies favored by bunnies.

That fence is interesting. I should try that.

Excellent thought! Do they have good hourly rates??

Hehehe.

Great tip, Spud, thanks. I've had to get rid of every rose bush I had because the deer and elk were just trashing them the moment they started blooming.

For you peeps that have trouble with deer eating you plants, I just saw a show on the TV show "Growing a Greener World", that showed how to make a small simple fence that fools deer into thinking they can't jump over it.  Here is the video of the show.  The simple fence is at 10 minutes:

Kale and Lettuce like a pH around neutral or slightly acidic.  6-7.5

What pH do cruciferous veggies and lettuce need?
Comment by Randall Smith on December 28, 2014 at 7:36am

Amy, both kale and lettuce thrive in my garden. It's spinach I have trouble with. Your problems could be in the soil pH, although leafy veggies are pretty tolerant. Let's face it, some vegetables are just stubborn. I can't grow melons, either.

Lots of things I don't know Diddly Squat about either.  I think that was a phrase used a lot in California when I lived there.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 27, 2014 at 10:04am

Not me Amy, but I'll put lettuce on the list to try next year.  My mouth is watering thinking of BLTs.
