Hello just curious if anyone has had luck using fishing line as a deer fence for their garden. I watched a couple videos and could see where it might work. I always welcome first hand experience more. I planted a larger than normal garden this fall. So still new to the fall part of gardening other than turnips.
In the spring and summer I make a pepper juice and apply it to the plants. It keeps them from bothering it really good.
My problem now, is a herd of several deer are hanging around and have eaten most of my peas, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, carrots, collard and turnip greens since yesterday evening. It went that fast and what was left, I applied the pepper juice this evening. I don’t mind sharing as I plant a little extra for them to eat. But eating almost everything is a bit too much. So now considering a fence. I hate to start hunting them as my neighbor’s wife likes to feed them in their pasture. They have been gone lately and with the drought we are in in North Georgia this might explain why they are turning to my garden.
