At first, I saw hoof prints around my front garden but no damage and after two days of that, now, they don't even set foot in my garden!I used a broom on the gravel to smooth it out to really see if anything was disturbed and it wasn't!I even had my husband get me truckloads of dirt in his Toyota truck. What to plant, where to put them, seeds versus bulbs versus six packs of flowers already started.After careful consideration I chose six packs because I could see my magical garden transform before my very eyes into the garden I had always dreamed of!
This has worked perfectly so far, and here's what you do.
Then right before my eyes I saw one of them get sucked down into the ground and in an instant it was gone!
I ran back to the nursery I got them from and they explained that i must have gophers. They looked for weaknesses in the fence and I would awaken once again to a garden stripped bare by these poor little deer.
So, I put some flat, heavy rocks at the fence where it was clear they probably got out and could have gotten in, but of course, they most likely got in under the gate. 19), I got up to use the bathroom at am, went out to check the garden and all was as it had been since the last invasion. When I went out to check, more squash had been eaten!
So for this week we did "Javelina watch," getting up around 7 am to check the garden. Plus, I noticed that the gate had been pushed up some more! We are down to our last couple of squash plants, and WILL NOT LOSE ANY MORE!
