Venison sells for up to $45.00 a pound, depending on the cut. THAT is how you get them to pay for the wall!

When I moved to where I live now (on the edge of a wildlife preserve and protected watershed lands), I looked into how I would be able to grow a veggie garden.

We see deer and turkey year 'round. We just saw 2 very ypung bucks and 5 adult does in our backyard during our dinner.

Then in warmer weather, we see bears, groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks, mice, and other creatures every week, so I learned that the fence has to be 8 feet or higher above ground, 2 feet below ground, and strong enough to keep a 300 lb black bear out.

Unless I want to spend several thousand dollars on 10 foot chain link fencing, or more on a greenhouse, I will have to just think about how much I miss my old gardens.

Lol, that's so Canadian.

But just don't try that when you're between the mama and cubs.

Love the play on words, in this day and time. Gave me a good giggle. Thanks for sharing, Roadfix!
