I have a hard time growing salad greens. Help?

I’m building a new fence this weekend. I started the main garden two years ago with a “one with nature,” against-fences attitude. Then deer came and ate everything but the basil. I’ve learned now that every fence has to be secure and at least four feet tall in order to deter deer from entering. I guess there are other methods of keeping deer out of the garden; chemicals, human hair, etc. Fences seem far more time-tested and simple than those methods.

Some local farmers markets:

Ashford Farmers Market is opening June 15th and will be at Pompey Hollow Park (across from the Town Hall), Route 44, Ashford, CT 06278 every Sunday through October.

Putnam Farmers Market is opening June 9th and will be at the Dunkin Donuts Parking Lot, Woodstock Avenue, Putnam CT 06260 every Monday and Thursday through October.

Another month and it will be blueberry season!
