Crime: Herbicide
When: Sometime during the night
Prime Suspect: Bambi and his cohorts

Looks like the deer discovered one of my patches of Rainbow Chard. [Not hard to figure out which side of the patch they munched on, is it?] I'm glad I had gone through and harvested a bunch of it just 3 days ago.

Now that they have discovered it, no doubt they'll be back. Bon appetit, Bambi and friends!

    Are you going to try to deter the critters or are you going to willingly share?? I have tried a garden stake or stakes......with plastic grocery bags tied to them at different levels in my areas where deer (or rabbits) were dining. Seemed to make enough noise & moved with the wind (or when something touched them) to keep my veggies from being somethings lunch.

    I feel for ya. This is a terrible year for my garden and animals.
    I'm imagining constructing a giant chicken wire box over the whole thing next year.

    Contrary1, thanks for the great suggestion on stakes (or branches stuck in the ground perhaps?) with plastic bags. Since I'm moving in the fall, I'm not going to invest in anything that would have to be moved, so I was just going to share with the critters, but sticks & bags would be worth a try.
