Protecting Plants from Deer and Rabbits

It's that time of year again when rabbits and deer are looking for some succulent plants to chew on. We have plenty of them in our neighborhood and their favorite foods are tulips, lilies, and hostas. I discovered the best repellent that actually works! Oh, yes, I tried the hair, soap, garlic, cayenne pepper, talcum powder tricks, but to no avail. So, here's what to do: Whirl an egg in the blender with a cup of water, pour into a pistol-grip spray bottle, fill the rest of the bottle near the top, adding 1 tsp. dish soap (helps adhere to the plant) and set outside in the hot sun for 3 days, until it becomes putrefied. Give the deer-loving plants a little squirt. You need to reapply only after a rain. I make up 2 bottles at a time so I always have one in reserve. It keeps fine over the winter if you don't use it all up. It's the only thing you'll ever need to keep those pests away.
