Deer – As beautiful, dainty and delicate as they appear, the white tail and other deer that inhabit the woods and fields not far from many of us seem to have a voracious appetite when it comes to our gardens and orchards. The average deer eats 4 to 5 pounds of green stuff every day, and once they discover a ripe salad bar like your garden or veg patch, they’ll keep coming back to fill their tanks. To save your prized flowers, fruits and veggies, try spraying them with the following mixture: 1 cup milk, 2 whole eggs, 2 tablespoons cooking oil, 2 tablespoons liquid detergent or soap and 2 gallons (8 litres) of water. Put it in one of those pump handled sprayers and have a go at your garden. It won’t harm you or your plants, and should keep the deer from snacking the night away.
