This morning I noticed that although no plants died, the deer clearly moved down my driveway overnight - hopefully the sprinkler prevented them from lingering and chomping (the seedlings would be microgreens for them at the moment, anyway). But their clomping hooves crunches about half a dozen pots. Remarkably, the plants in the pots survived and are now resettled into new pots and replaced growing medium.
But....yet another reminder that for gardeners (and farmers, of course), it is always something - the unpredictable weather and all the issues it brings, critters....and, soon, diseases. I guess we who dig and plant can therefore be considered either optimists (although it is always something, there is always a chance to do it again, and better)....or fools to keep trying in the face of so much adversity! (just kidding...it is all totally worth it!).
