It’s the time of year when peas, spinach, lettuce, brocolli, and other cool-season vegetables can be planted. They can handle some spring freezes. But my worry since moving up on the ridge here at our Utah house is that that deer will feast on our garden bounty.
There are a lot of articles on what deer will and won’t eat, and it largely boils down to how hungry they are. I did find this article useful, although plenty of commenters say the deer eat their tomatoes and squash, when it said they’ll generally avoid them.
Sadly, everyone seems to agree my desire for peas and spinach is futile. We have talked about someday creating some kind of enclosure to keep deer out of our veggies. It won’t happen this year, but someday… :)
