Oh Deer.

The garden leadership team met last week and discussed possibilities that could help with the deer problem at the garden. In the meantime, what's happening in your garden plot? Which plants are the deer favoring and what are they leaving alone? If you are doing something that is helping to ward off the deer, please comment and share so we can get some individual ideas circulating.
