Wonder if anybody can recommend something to stop the deer eating my over wintering vegetables. Last season I have a regarding the "gap" you tend to get between finishing the previous seasons vegetables and the new seasons being ready. I read about Purple Sprouting Broccoli and thought that seemed a very good idea to fill the "gap". Well yes it would have been if it hadn't been for the herd of damned bambis who decided to take up night quarters here and scoffed most of my Broccoli along with various other things too numerous to mention! I lost probably 90% of the Brocolli to deer but a few have managed to sprout, ha ha, into life and jolly tasty it is too. I wasn't so far wrong with the idea but have the ongoing issue of unwelcome visitors. I have tried all the (useless) deterrents but if the deer are hungry enough any amount of human hair draped about the place etc etc etc has zero effect. A small piece of lead between the ears I believe works but have absolutely no intention of being that drastic. I was wondering about some sort of netting type cage. It wouldn't need to be incredibly strong, just enough to put them off so they go and eat the likes of my Camellias, sigh, instead. It would need to be sturdy enough tho to withstand all that winter would throw at it. I'd want something of about 15 ft x 10ft x 5ft roughly. I might also plant some Swede in the cage as that went for a burton thanks to the deer as well. I could use long canes and something like stronger gauge pea netting but don't think just sticking 8ft canes in the ground would stand up to winter.
