someone told me that spreading human urine around the garden will keep the deer away. Is that true? Nick

Not really. Deer do not consider humans much of a threat. Predator urines - coyote, for instance, will be much more effective. There are chemical deer repellants available (Ropel and Deer Away) that are really nasty tasting. One nibble and deer generally avoid the plants. The bottom line, though, is that fencing is the most effective deer deterrent around.
