Not only aren't Wife and I good gardeners ... we have a pet name for our yard.  We buy flowers and stuff for the yard.  Based on the average longevity of said purchased plants ... our yards is officially known as:

Yes.  Lettuce spinach, radishes, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, leeks, beets. yellow crookne4ck squash, zucchini, pole beans cucumber and  (purple) green beans are in the ground.

I urinate around the garden to keeps rabbits out.   Advantage of being out of town.

Also dill is coming up which  helps keep the deer away.  I think dill smell is so strong they don't know the other things are around.

Gardening of bonsai trees and flowers, I love that and work a lot in my garden. I don't have any sort of a food type garden at all though.

Well your Honor, I figured that the buck had invited himself to diner and if I supplied all of the veggies I felt the least he could do was supply the meat...

Ha! That was my first thought, until I realized that I lived in one of the most liberal counties in one of the most liberal states in America.

In that case:

"Your Honor.  I watch the whole thing.  That poor deer tripped and fell into the butcher shop!  They were cutting up beef and he just slipped right through."

 

"What was I supposed to do after the meat was processed and packaged?  Try to put him back together?"
