Now to be fair, it could have been a very tall groundhog. But I doubt it.
So, whether my strategy is good defense or offense, I have decided to employ all techniques this year. We have granules that smell, and dried blood that is sprayed on everything, little canisters that emit some odor they don't like and now - Tents. That's right. Tents constructed of deer netting.
Last year I used the netting, but I just laid it over the plants. This year I got more sophisticated, as shown below. I also found a use for old political sign wires. They work well for holding up the net in the middle.
