We often have deer in our front and side yards. They ate all the strawberry plants, which was a disappointment, but mostly they haven't been too much trouble. Unfortunately, they have discovered the big garden. The gate was left open one night while we were gone, and the deer ate the tops off most of my tomato plants in the big garden. It was a depressing sight. The plants do still have small green tomatoes on them, though. A deer also stepped on one of the zucchini plants, but I think it's going to be fine. It's just a bit knocked over. I did get 2 little zucchini last night. There are blooms all over the canatloupe and pumpkin plants, and those tiny cucumbers are still pretty tiny. There is one half-orange tomato in the small garden, and one tiny head of broccoli. The butternut squash plant doesn't look real healthy, but it has a flower on it, too.
We did have a nice weekend. We got to spend some time with my nephew and a lot of other relatives, and everyone had a great time.
