A while back my wife and I passed the neighbor's place while on our atv. The neighbor lady has a big round wooden container by one of the driveways and she planed hostas in it. Wife said, "I wonder how long before the deer get to them?" The deer found them. So I talked to the lady and she told me about first giving the kids a good talking to about her flowers. She was mad. Then something again so this time she jumped on her husband. Evidently he set her straight on what was into her hostas. Deer love them! Deer also love sunflowers so a warning to others if they want to keep the sunflowers. Of course, they deer also love peas, beans, etc, etc.
