There is a family of deer that kind of hangs out on our property. It has been fun to watch them. One is a lame female. Her front left leg was maybe broken, or otherwise damaged. She gets around pretty well. Each year we are happy to see that she is still with us. This afternoon, we saw some HUGE deer. Man, they have gotten really big.
This photo is looking down the driveway. The deer are pretty far down there, maybe not easily visible. It’s a “Where’s Waldo” thing. Can you spot them?
Here is a closer view. There are 3 deer in this photo. Should be fairly easy to see them all.
Meanwhile, the seedlings are doing pretty well. The new veggies I’m adding this year are cauliflower and cabbage. Here are the cabbage seedlings:
It is still pretty amazing to me that these will one day become FOOD!
Spring is just around the corner :)

You even labeled your seed pots! You’re so smart!
Big deer love gardens. I hope you plan on a good fence. :)
I’m going to try a raised bed with either bird netting or chicken wire over it (like a hoop house, sort of). I’ll post more photos as I get it all set it up. Those deer! I love having ’em around, but we are quickly finding out that we need to be very creative to grow things here. Last summer, I put a few annuals out in pots and they ate everything except the petunias! I grew the veggies in pots on the front porch, so those were safe. Keep your fingers crossed for me :)
