It's a Good Fence

The past few years, the deer have really taken their fair share of my garden.  Last year they took it all - even tomatoes.  So, this year, we put up a deer fence.  The black net type.  We put up permanent corner posts and removable T posts.  The net can be taken down for the winter.  So far, so good.  

Our farrier (I've posted about him before, he is a character) came over and was looking at the fence.  He says "boy, you must have some pretty smart deer out here."  I said yes and started to explain about last year....when he says, "no, I mean they must be able to read...."  It took me a minute....

We used what we had.  This tape is left over from the set up of our flea market - Ringle Harvest Day.  We put it up, because the net is hard to see.  All I could think of was waking up to a deer tangled and kicking in that net.  It also flaps around in the wind, making noises.  I have high hopes for some of my own sweet corn this year!  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
