Deer pressure

The deer pressure is on.  This year they are eating our onions!  They are trying things they didn’t care for last year like peppers, tomatillos and onions.  We started growing onions because the deer didn’t appear to care for them.  Not this year!

We’ve put the bird netting on our carrots, peppers and beets.  The other deer loving items like blueberries, grapes, strawberries, cabbage, lettuce, kale….they are all inside our deer proof fence. 

We need several dogs…

Don’t tell the boys but today while we were touring the farm with Oregon Tilth, I spotted some red strawberries.  Anything sweet around here will be gone in minutes.  Next year that whole field will be strawberries, enough for everyone, even Penny.

We also have some peas but someone is munching on them.  I think it’s rabbits, Craig thinks it’s ground squirrels.  Our overwintering kale is being devoured by aphids.  We released some lady bugs last week but…I don’t know.  The preying mantis are hatching on the frig, they will eat those pesky suckers!

Strawberries and blueberries are right around the corner but so are the greens.  Greens are good for your brain, but more importantly for your kids developing brain, did you know that?
