I just planted some echinacea, zinnias and lemon balm seeds in an outdoors planter. I’m going to start some vegetables indoors  probably next week. I just have two trough planters so it won’t be much. Now I just gotta figure out a way to keep the deer away! Any tips on that are appreciated.

@libra-noir Seeing as you cut hair... some around here take hair and put it in knee high panti-hose and tie it to whatever. The idea is the deer are afraid of the people smell.

I did it for a couple of years... the deer tend to go to my neighbors (due to terrain) or prefer to eat peaches from our trees.  I realized they are not the main critter problem here.

@libra-noir Have had great success with Irish Spring Bar Soap hung through out the garden as a deterrent - it is long lasting + inexpensive.

@elsa I got a hard copy at Tractor Supply. It helped when deciding what seeds to start first.

My tomatoes, green onions, herbs and Bells of Ireland flowers are now putting out sprouts. Yay!
