If you have fox urine available, apply a light mist of it to the top foliage. If you don't have it, use your own. Either way, the deer won't eat it. Or, mix a garlic and hot pepper spray and mist with that.
deer at my house have eaten everything except garlic. Even onions, leeks, potato tops and tomatoes. I think they go after the potato and tomato tops when it is dry and they are looking for moisture. Lisa
This topic made me think of my dad's cherry tomato plants. He fought a constant battle with the deer. He lived in the country. When I was pregnant with my first child I got such an intense craving for cherry tomatoes. This was about 2 am. I grabbed my salt shaker and drove out to his place and proceeded to eat all the ripe tomatoes off of his plants. I never told him I was guilty, and to his dying day he cussed those deer. lol!
