I told Phil that a few days ago after that first little rain storm we got that when I went down to the garden one of my tomato cages was knocked over and I was sure there was a deer track beside it. I don't think he believed it could have been a deer track but we see them all the time out here down the sides of the dirt road or in the mud down by the lake and I was sure it was one. The garden has a 4 ft. fence around but, of course, that isn't much of a deterrent to a deer..
Well last night when he let our little dachshund, Romie, outside Romie ran away down the road after something. (It's a dirt road but still has cars so Phil went screaming after him, lol). Romie will do that for any type of animal in the yard though so we really didn't think anything about it.
Anyway, this morning Phil went out to go to work and came back in to tell me that he had seen a deer right there on the lawn by the garden. Mystery solved. We now know what is eating stuff in the garden. Now I just have to figure out what to do about it.
