Give It Up!

Deer are tenacious and unrelenting when it comes to helping themselves to my garden.

But, they have grossly underestimated the unrelenting tenacity of carolinabrown.

My latest project is this…

Each day, I add a few more stepping stones along my blueberry bushes and a little more Lemon Thyme. (Note the humble beginnings of the Lemon Thyme groundcover that will soon invade the area.)

Deer don’t like Lemon Thyme. One day, each step they take will release a refreshing citrusy- lemony scent which will make them have to reconsider how badly they want those berries.

Give it up, deer. You are going to lose.

And that’s what I tell Satan, my mortal enemy, too.


“Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says, “Oh no, she’s awake.” “–unknown

Every time my hubby's plants start an eggplant or a cucumber, SOMETHING comes and eats it!! We don't have deer in this area. We think it's rabbits or maybe a groundhog. We just bought more fencing and wrapped them On tall rods. Hope we end up with some before the growing season is over. Good luck with your blueberries!!

It takes a whole lot of work to outsmart the things that want to eat our garden!

Wow! It looks so great out there! I really like the addition of the stepping stones and lemon thyme. Great spiritual connection too!

Ryan likes to pick it and smell it. The other day he said, "This place is going to be paradise!"
