I have a groundhog who has eaten my brocolli plants. Is there something I can put in the garden to deter them?

To be honest, there are home remedy deterrents such as hot pepper flakes and so on, but the only definitive answer is to remove the animal. They can be trapped with a live trap and relocated, depending on local ordinances and restrictions. You might wish to call in a professional because groundhogs can be very dangerous, in addition to doing a lot of damage to your garden.
