The Horror!

Deer PestSue Johnson here!
I need help BIG time!  I believe that all the deerses in this area have had a smorgasbord these past few nights.  I have ALL the leaves chomped off of at least 30 some odd hostas.  And that of course means my garden looks like it has single celery stalks sticking out of the ground.
I have never had a problem like this in the almost 30 years of living here.  Obviously, they can’t be salvaged for this year, but what about next year?  What can I do to prevent their ravenous chewing?
Any suggestions will be certainly appreciated! Please leave a comment, give me a call or send an email.

Web Master’s note: Here is a video with some info on keeping out deer. Also plant some barberry in your yard. Deer hate them. Help Sue out! Send her your suggestions.

Friend or Foe?

Most of the gardening season I focus on the “bad guys” that invade my garden. You know who I’m talking about – aphids, tomato horn worms, cabbage moths, etc. The list goes on. Here’s a video from Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply with some helpful information about “good guys” – beneficials that we can put in our gardens to be our gardening partners.
