DEER (be-gone) POTION
Start with a two gallon watering can (or any two gallon container). Add:
Sprinkle over susceptible plants once a week or more frequently, if there is rain.
Must be most diligent the first year. The deer will train their children to go toward (or away from) your property.
Fred keeps eight watering cans filled with the potion so that there is no preparation time involved when he needs to use the potion.
For most gardens, he says, one or two watering cans will cover all the plants that need to be doused.
