Oh, I have several chapters already. There are lots of ways to 
discourage Bambi - you just have to change your thinking 
about what a garden should look like.  I just keep trying to 
find ways to protect a few of the things I really hate to give
up, like tulips.  
The problem is that nothing works forever.  I had a nice clump
of impatiens snuggled down in a bed full of 'Powis Castle' and
purple Perilla frutescens - lasted most of the summer, but one
day in August I realized that it wasn't there any more - eaten
neatly off.
