Last Thursday, I drove to Port Carling, Ont. to visit with my son-in-law Carl, my daughter Shelley and my two grandchildren Corben and Tao.
Tao had started some tomato plants from seed in the house earlier this spring and babied those plants. He made a little garden outside and planted the tomato plants. But the deer ate the tops off. Shelley had planted flowers at the road around their light and street number and the deer ate them too. She went out and bought artificial flowers so she wouldn’t have any more problems. I heard about Tao’s problem with the deer and dug out two of my plants and brought them with me to give to him. I put them in large pots so they can keep them on the deck and hopefully the deer won’t get them there.
