How to Grow a Survival Garden (and What to Do If It Dies)

• https://www.theorganicprepper.com by Daisy Luther

Except for that one year. That one year, my garden was a flop.

Eaten by deer, killed by the heat

It's pretty embarrassing to admit on my own website that my garden did not do diddly squat that year. I am normally pretty good at growing food (or just extraordinarily lucky) but a few years back circumstances beyond my control threw up one obstacle after another.  First of all, we moved on July 1. I had started my garden in containers, earlier in the summer, and then transplanted them into my lovely new fenced garden full of raised beds.

Only, the fences weren't high enough, and unbeknownst to me, I had set up a deer buffet with a low hurdle. Garden #1, GONE. Decimated. Wiped out. And I didn't even get venison in retribution.
