Our good friend, "Uncle" John, keeps a big garden at the farm. It's below the barn, close to the creek. John's garden always looks so good. He has flowers, Bluebird houses, and a seemingly weed-free garden. He works hard to make it like this and we see him puttering around down there almost every day.
Last year, lots of critters got into his patch and helped themselves to his plants and veggies. This year "Uncle" John is fighting back. He has an electric fence with a solar charger and at least 5 strands. He also hung pie tins smeared with peanut butter from the fence lines. The idea is that the deer will lick the peanut butter and get a shock on their nose. Hopefully that will be enough to scare them away from the garden.
If not, the guineas will surely put up a fuss, and do their best scare pests out of the garden.
