A barrier is about the only way to keep your veggies safe. You may be able to get by with hoops of chicken wire over the rows or you may need to fence off the entire garden. I've had good luck by driving stakes into the ground all around the vegetable bed and stringing nylon fishing line between the stakes. When deer bump into something they can't see it spooks them and they back off. It might work for you, too. Hope so!
