Jim, what a great story. I don't have deer problems in the hosta acreage,
but the usual squirrels and rabbits who believe the hostas have been
planted for their gustatorial pleasure. I have a miniature dachshund and a
Jack Russell terrier, who together do an admirable job of patrolling the
perimeter and keeping the intruders at bay. What a perfect combination is
the love of dogs in tandem with the love of hostas. Kris
