Home Tip of the Day: How to Keep Animals from Eating Plants

Are critters feasting on your garden? This tip will solve your plant woes with one simple ingredient.

One summer, my father declared war against the deer that visited our backyard.  The deer had impeccable taste, they loved anything that flowered.  The rose bushes and the day lilies were gone before you could say “bloom.”

Finally, my dad couldn’t take it any longer.  He constructed twelve-foot tall wire fences and threatened to take up the night watch, until finally someone suggested this surprisingly simple garden tip.  See how to keep animals from eating plants in the easy home tip below.  It only takes one ingredient!
