Deer jumping fence.
I have 3 times on different occasions seen a deer jump a 6' high fence from a stand still, at the end of our road, early morning, from my neighbor's back yard back into the woods. I spook it when I approach in my truck. I assume he jumped the fence to get into the back yard, as it is surrounded by fence. They must have some desirable deer goodies in that yard. Here's a good example... this is probably a 6' high fence. Jump
On the run, they can probably clear 8', maybe more. How high can a deer jump?
I'm not picking on you Fresh... what works for one doesn't always work for others, especially in different regions of the country. Just speaking from experience. We all have our little niche's.
Soaker hoses are definitely a great way to water and save water. My boxes are only 10' by 5' so every inch is valuable growing area. I tried snaking hoses but need sharper corners to save space, hence the elbows and T's, etc. Regarding watering in hot weather... it's more about watering in bright sun. The water drops on the leaves can act as a magnifying glass and burn the leaves. I have read many places that watering at night causes disease on lawns, etc. Can't prove that by me. I have been watering my lawn from 9pm thru 4am, in total darkness, for 30 plus years. Looks like a golf course. I water the veggies at early morning so they have time to dry before the bright, hot sun arrives.
