Deer ate our first garden, too. :-(

Last spring we put up 8' deer fencing around our garden space so that's solved! I've since read that angled fencing (made with angled posts) can keep deer out since they have poor depth perception. Don't know if this is true but... may be less expensive than an 8' fence. Here's a link to a pic: https://www.goodfruit.com/low-cost-fence-keeps-deer-out/

Thank you for the tip! :) I refuse to get discouraged by the first garden in a new place- it's always a mess. We did buy some fencing and will definitely be putting it up this spring. :) Here's to this gardening season NOT being full of garden-eating creatures, squash bugs, and drought! <3
