Kodi growled softly some time during the night. He was lying on his dog bed on the floor near our bed. He doesn't usually growl during the night, and except for the growl he didn't budge from his bed. I should remember that a low growl, however brief, means something. I walked out to the garden this morning to turn on the drip irrigation (it is still quite dry here) and noticed a few okra tops missing. I immediately looked over at the Swiss chard to see a few tall leaves that I was about to harvest gone. A deer jumped the fence again.
Fortunately there was minimal damage, but our fence with its streamers of colorful flagging has been penetrated. I think we'll just have to put up with a little bit of deer herbivory. There really is plenty to go around.
