"Joan, they ate my strawberry plants too. Other plants in my deer's favorite location, that they dont touch: Rabbit ears (Stachys byzantia), German iris, Siberian iris, Rudbeckia, peonies, Crocosmia, cosmos, violets, mints,…"
"Pink Banana Squash, Winter Luxuey Pumpkin, some Buttetnut Squash that didn't grow much, and some volunteer squashes that might be crosses of zucchinis with pumpmins.
Some daffodils to give hope for Spring."
Normally I don't respond to forum posts, but my heart goes out to you.
Many years ago, when I was a young soldier, I got myself into near-death situations more than once. The first time, my thought was, Im sorry to my parents, for…"
