    Marmots, or ground hogs, have decided to dine on my vegetable garden. It's time for some marmot stew.

    Went out to put the hens to bed at aboput 10 p.m. heard the hooves of the feckin deer making off after clunking them against the wooden sides of the raised beds.
    I had been planning to lie in wait for them at about 1 a.m. as that is when they appeared on the trail cam, with my powerful torch and the hose set to jet.
    Feckers!
    Been out a few times since.
    No sign of em.
    Grrrr!!!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Yer well, not funny.
    Wifey puts so much of her heart and soul into her veg gardening, so it is more Deer 1 Wifey 0.
    I just hope I put the fear of God into them.
    We'll be getting electric fencing and one of those automatic sense and squirt jobbies as according to the net they are the most effective, beyond building stoopid feck off high double fencing.
    I've been out twice since sneaking around in the dark until I have the hose gun in my hand and switch on the powerful torch.
    Nothing.

    Sorry for the losses. Sadly the Deer will just see it as "tasty treats" left out for them to enjoy. :(
    Unless you put the beds in enclosed cages, polytunnel's or greenhouses I fear you will just suffer ongoing opportunistic attacks/thefts.
    We raised a Horse Chestnut tree from Conker to about 4-foot and donated it to a local Sally Army run farm. They forgot to encase it in chicken wire and the goats ring-barked it.
    A family joke here is "Spiny Norman" a pine tree we dug up as a forest floor sapling in the highlands of Tenerife. He was cosseted in his home soil inside two pop-bottles with the ends cut off with one as a slip-cover over the other.
    They grow to 50-60 feet or more and have a straight trunk with just a cluster of foliage at the top and nowhere else.
    He lived on the kitchen window-sill for a year and grew well. Then Wifey decided to "harden him up" and put him in a growing on pot outside.
    Sadly, the snail community loved his delicate young bark and killed him within a day or so. :(
