Garden Pests

Anonymous added on January 23, 2011 | Answered

We live in an area which has an abundance of wildlife (deer, rabbits and wood pigeons). My last attempt at developing a vegetable garden (6 years ago) was a disaster and EVERYTHING that I planted got eaten. Can you please suggest to me a list of vegetables that would survive these conditions (e. g. I believe that potatoes will not be touched by the wildlife).

Unfortunately, there are no vegetables that are immune to these kinds of pests, especially deer. You may want to consider building an enclosed vegetable garden to keep them out.

I lived in Maryland for a while and people would build fences around their gardens to keep out the rabbits. The deer would need an extremely high fence, more that 4'.
