Dirty Little Buggers…

I caught a deer red handed in the garden today, munching the leaves off an innocent squash plant. I was on the deck and it looked up and saw me… and didn’t run! The little twerp just stood there and stared at me. And went back to eating. I had Mom come out and see the gall of it and we managed to shoo it away. From now on we need to be much more vigilant about covering things up at night, although it was barely twilight in this incident.

We talked to the deer and rabbits, telling them that they could take just a couple of nibbles off the ends of rows but not to go down the rows, as per Da Jin Sun’s advice. That is how they keep the animals from ruining their crops at the hermitage. My only concern is that they only respond to instructions in Chinese but we will see.
