Deer Like Swiss Chard Too
Well, so much for my perpetual spinach-type Swiss Chard this year. The deer have eaten them down to nubs. Fortunately, they haven't touched anything else in the front garden yet, but I need to be vigilant. Eventually I will build a fence around the front garden. I just haven't gotten around to it yet. In the meantime I've just been using cylinders of chicken wire around the plants (like giant tomato cages) which work but are a hassle.
The chard didn't have wire around them, and this is the result.
Oh well, they were bolting and getting bitter anyway.
