Since we moved to our current home a couple of years ago, the only thing the deer won't eat is garlic. So, here is this year's crop, 90 plants strong and looking healthy. Harvesting and drying should start in a few weeks. So far, so good! 20200612_194013.jpg

If only it were legal in the 'burbs. My son hunts in Michigan and I make a lot of summer sausage from the venison. The ones that trudge through my property don't seem fazed when I hold up a summer sausage chub of their cousin!!!!

If they're eating all your crops maybe you can file for a nuisance permit?

Deer will eat near anything that smells good to them. Even pot plants. Ask my new 9 foot tall deer fence how I know that little Diddy :emoji_laughing:
Here is the garlic hanging in my basement for the next couple of weeks to dry. After some sharing, about 80 heads remain.
Check out the size of the elephant garlic! I set a golf ball next to it for perspective. View attachment 454660 View attachment 454660
