At least one sly deer read my July 1 blog post on excluding deer with a fishing line fence. On July 2 I noticed that 3 of my 23 tomato plants had a few top stems nipped- by deer of course. It was a warning shot; a clear message: “Go ahead- brag about some other silly attempt to keep us from enjoying all of the food groups. Next time we won’ t leave any green tissue.”
It looks like one deer jumped over the fence or crawled under. Will the others figure it out? With vegetation drying down I am surprised the deer have not made more of an effort. Tonight I will be adding a few more runs of fishing line to discourage these marauders.
This is a temporary solution. I’ll be busy building a more permanent bamboo fence this fall.
