Wanted - Garden Thief

July 25, 2011

For robbing, taking bites out of our tomatoes, mowing down my strawberries and trampling our garden.
 Here she is...  Mrs. Doe caught red handed in the heat of the day yesterday! 
... and her two accomplices!! 
Please Mrs. Doe and little ones, move on to greener pastures and the corn field down the road and leave our garden alone!

If anyone has any secrets on how to keep Bambi out, please let me know.  I would love to hear before my garden goes to the deer.

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.

This is an old, old remedy... sometimes it works, sometimes it does not... but it worked for me at our little farm we used to have... put dog hair around your plants and they will not cross it... does you pup shed? Comb her and take the hair and scatter it... xoxo Julie Marie PS Those are such beautiful creatures, I would probably let them stay nowadays!

I've heard that human hair also works.. you could go to your hairdresser and ask her to save you some to scatter around the garden. hope you have some luck with the deer!

Oh, no! Not your tomatoes! Those are treasures! I do love the beauty of deer but they sure are a menace when it comes to garden. We are out in the Black Hills staying with friends who have a wonderful garden and they just hate the deer. They have tried so many things to keep them away and none work too well. Some are pretty funny!

I know just what you are going through. Now I know you have probably heard of this one before but it really works - Irish Spring soap! Put bars of the soap into old nylon stockings and hang them on the plants and also hang them around the perimeter of the area you want protected. You do need to use lots of soap but it is still less expensive than the liquid sprays.

Human hair. Any salon will be glad to give you a bag of hair. I have used it in the past, and believe me, it works! To keep away bunnies, sprinkle either blood meal or bone meal around the plants.

They know a good thing when they see it. As long as man continues to build, the animals will continue to lose their habitat. Good luck finding a way to deter them. Best wishes, Tammy
