Houston we have a problem.
The deer have been eating the buds off our freshly planted apple trees. Normally we would fence around the trees but for some crazy unknown reason that didn’t happen. So what are we doing to prevent the deer from continuing to munch on our delicious trees?
Soap. Yup we have drilled holes in bar soap and slid it right onto a branch. The idea behind this is simple, when it rains the bar soap will get what and the deer want nothing to do with the tree. It’s a little known fact but deer hate Irish Spring soap. The neighbors think we have lost our mind but IT WORKS!
