    No problems for me so far. We'll see what happens when the tomatoes ripen.

    I have a recipe for deer deterrent that I got from my father in law , he used it on his roses, it worked, if you'd like I can find it and see if it would be suitable for use on plants used for human consumption.......it doesn't have anything dangerous in it.

    I found it.......1 teaspoon dishwashing detergent; 1 egg; 1 quart water......mix together and spray on flowers and shrubs.

    Apparently deer don't like the smell.

    It says nothing about berries though, you probably wouldn't want to spray food you are going to eat......maybe just spraying the leaves would be enough.

    Collect dog hair (especially hunting breeds) and sprinkle around the plants...there is also a fencing product called Deer-X you might want to look into...

    I could totally see this working, just make sure the detergent is non-antibacterial

    So in general how is everyone's garden going so far? As usual mine will be among the latest to produce because we don't plant unttil around the first of June. I start some seeds in a little greenhouse but it's not the same.
    Should have some zuccinni and tomaties soon though.

    Very happy with the broccoli harvest. Kale has done well too. I planted curly leaf kale this year. I preferred the dinosaur kale I planted last year but whatever. I eat a lot of greens so I'm getting my money's worth.

    Peppers are just maturing. I have a couple jalapenos that are ready to pick but I want to let them ripen. My peppers usually start producing a weekly harvest in early July.
