I am a little depressed. I love wild life and I hate wild life.

I hunted for this property so I could have acres of land to garden and not run out of space. I cannot grow anything without something eating it to the ground.

Groundhogs can eat as much as deer in one night they can and have ate my entire collection of hostas. The deer are not suppose to eat Daffodils I have seen them eating my daffs. They are illiterate creatures they did not read that book about daffs are not to be eaten.

The rabbits eat as my tender growth starts to grow.

I never thought the Turkeys were bad. I though finally something I can look out my window and not say bad words. Well that was until they snapped off the buds of the Asiatic Lilies, and daylily buds. No Lilies to watch bloom and no daylilies to see bloom that are new and I have not seen them bloom yet.

I am depressed.

Cinta, I sure know how you feel. We also bought in the boonies to have plenty of land to garden, and all of the critters have gotten most of it. We got a greenhouse, and will be putting up some fenced areas, but it's a constant battle to be able to grow anything. I thought they didn't like sempervivums, but something has been eating them too.

I've tried all of the repel type stuff. Nothing works well or for long. It is very depressing.

Yes the sempervivums was my biggest surprise. I moved a entire garden of them from my old garden. I was so excited to see them growing in full sun. I had grown them in shade on my old property....all I had was shade.

They ate every last one before I realized they were animal food.

Group hug It is heartbreaking when that happens. Quite a few of my semps are gone too. We will be building cages and using netting. I hate the look of it all, but if we don't do that, we can't grow anything outdoors.
