Building a Deer Fence Phase V: Garden Gate

The new gate latch!

The red ball thing is a piece from an old lawnmower. For the opening, I cut a hole in the deer fence material and wrapped the edges with garden twine. If you can’t fit a square peg in a round hole, how about a round peg in a square hole?!

    The corner office looks wonderful! I grew up with deer devouring our vegetable garden, and I don’t miss having to fend them off. I hope the fence holds up!
