Remember this resilient sunflower? This is how I found it this morning. The developing seed head is still there... I guess those new, developing leaves are delicious to deer. !! The Re-Farmer
While doing my rounds this morning, with my usual checking of the garden beds, I decided to try and harvest some of the beets. Our poor, sad little beets. I could tell that a deer had visited last night, as pretty much the last of the larger beet greens are gone. I had been looking … Continue reading Sad beets
I realized I've neglected to take progress photos of some of our garden beds, so I got a few this morning. Here are our two potato beds. I was shooting blind, because my phone's screen went completely black in the sunlight. Still, you can see the potatoes among the mulch, separated by a path of … Continue reading How does the garden(s) grow?
Of the first sunflowers that we planted, several of them are now taller than me! Unfortunately, the smaller ones from the second planting are still having deer issues. Right next to the nearest sunflower in the above picture is this one. This is one of the ones that had had its head bitten off a … Continue reading Sunflower finds
Yesterday evening, I happened to glance out my window facing the garden and saw a deer making its way into the yard. Something startled it and it ran off, but I figured that would be a good time to do my evening rounds - and check the sunflowers! I headed out through the sun room … Continue reading Evening visitors, and growth progress
While my daughters and I were in the city, my darling husband finally got through to our internet provider and had a little chat with them. We had internet soon after. The problem is still not solved, though. It's just a make-do until a tech comes out to check the secondary account's satellite disk. When … Continue reading Let’s give this a try
The predicted thunderstorms did pass over us last night. Not the severest part of the system, but enough that we had quite the light show. More are expected today, though I think we will, once again, just get hit by the edges of the system. I had intended to actually *gasp* go to bed before … Continue reading An interesting night!
After our adventure last night, I'm rather impressed by my current lack of pain this morning! 🙂 I expected to at least be stiffening up by now, but at the moment, there's just some minor tension in my neck and shoulders. I'm taking pain killers, anyway, but that's really more for my arthritis. I really … Continue reading How things are this morning
Okay, so the adrenaline rush is over, and my hands are no longer shaking. What a rush! I had taken my mother's car to pick my daughter up from work. My mother hasn't needed any rides for quite a while, so I've been using it more often just so it's not sitting around for too … Continue reading Thank you, Jesus!!
While walking about the yard this morning, there are areas that I can see where the deer have gone. Along the edge of the spruce grove, there are now several areas like this. This patch is new. It wasn't there yesterday. At the end of the row of spruces, near the feeding station, there is … Continue reading Destructive deer!
