They will start on the browse when it comes back. Try one of those mini windmills or wind chimes. Anything that moves irregularly makes them nervous. Well for a while anyway.

Oh yeah I forgot. Northern tool sells a motion sensor sprinkler solenoid. Attach it before a sprinkler and leave on the water. Deer walk up and the sprinkler hoses them down.

I figured you would recognize a good scrogging when you see one.

Which is worse - nervous or awkward? 

Thumbs up on your Americans/Europeans signature line.

And Europeans wear those gay little soccer-looking shoes and soccer jerseys everywhere.

If the ball doesn't have laces it's not a real team sport.

We used to build quite elaborate squirrel tossers.  Like this but with a trip wire so the squirrel could set it off themselves: 

My buddy was always talking about building a large slow tosser for a deer. 

Oh and in case you get gophers/moles: Pump some Oxy acetylene in their tunnel and ignite with steel wool.

I had a buddy that rigged his bird feeder hanging in a tree with 120 volts. When the squirrel sat on the 120 volt metal base, and grabbed the isolated but grounded feeder, he completed the circuit.

That skeet thrower rigged as a squirrel tosser is the best but I would like the death sentence bird feeder

that's some BA stuff UW.

so many ideas, so little time.  And I was gonna just use chicken wire.  Too much fun to be had for that.

When I was a kid, my dad rigged a trap involving the garbage can and his .22 rifle, to kill what he thought was a raccoon scattering our trash.  A few days later, the neighbor came by and asked if we'd seen his dog, and my dad said no.  His red face told me he had seen it.....

sure is amazing how warm 40 degrees and sunshine can feel.  It's been sub-40, with either rain or heavy clouds for 3 days.  Ice everywhere this morning, as it was 20 last night.

Tonight is the last sub-freezing night in the forecast (only 31), so I am looking forward to growing season finally gearing up.  Blackberries and raspberries are starting to grown some leaves.  Don't know yet if the bluebs survived the 3-day freeze.

I wish I had apple grafting wood.  I am anxious to get that project started.  I also found out you can graft fruiting cherries onto ornamental cherries, so I'll add that to next spring's grafting project list.

I'm picking up a peach/nectarine/plum frankentree this weekend, then I can finally start on the vegetables. 

This Green Acres thing is sort of fun.  If I can figure out a way to generate my own electricity, I can go off grid.

Anyone else notice Trump doesn't have as much color in his face? More like a Lays potato chip now...

Hillary's face looks like a Ruffles chip.

that's what donkeys are for.  they are effective herd guardians, and seem to especially hate coyotes. 

too bad I don't have enough space for a herd and a couple of donkeys to protect it.

Good news, for me anyways.  I found an orchard that still has grafting wood, so I can order some sticks, and be grafting in a week or so, while there's still time to do it.

Hoping it works, since they take 3 yrs to fruit.  Anxious to get started with my frankentree.

I have some pecans that were grafted back in the 60's. I have 4 mature trees left. Two took the grafts well. One produces a big paper shell, and another one makes a big walnut shaped pecan. Of the other two, one is about half native and half small paper shell, and one is all native. My mom picks up at least 5 garbage bags full each year and has them cracked.
