The deer ate my snaps or it could be the rabbits. I have a good chunk of our gardens fenced with deer fence with a nice wooden one along the points of entry because the deer fence is ugly. Nantucket has an enormous deer population. Our house is suppose to be in the area with the highest density which is estimated to be between 80 and 100 deer in the square mile around us. I love seeing them out in the adjacent moors and even in the unfenced 2 acres that I left for them. But too many.
Here is a new section that we had done this summer. DH and I did the plastic deer fence with an additional lower barrier of rabbit wire. We have had the deer fence up for 6 years. It works, but the rabbits just eat holes through it and munch on everything. grrrrrrrrr. So DH is on a constant patrol looking for breaches in the fence. Plus we spray. Thanks for the article. Patti
