Open Letter to the Local Deer Population

Dear Deer,

I must inform you that, this year, the garden I have planted is intended for human consumption only. I know you have been looking forward to the garden buffet that you have enjoyed here in years past. Last years tomato smorgasborg was heavenly, I know. (Actually, I don’t know, since you left so little for me…) But, this year I am publicly asking you to stay away. Please let the gophers know that this goes for them, too.

Sincerely

Shelly

And here is a kitten update:
