Autumn Backyard Nighttime Nature in New Jersey.
In New Jersey, the night before Halloween has sometimes been called “Mischief Night” where teenagers engage in pranks and vandalism — throwing eggs, toilet papering trees, setting fires, etc. Well this year, a deer got up on my patio and did the mischief. It ate the Kale, Swiss Chard, Broccoli Rabe, Parsley, Basil, Thyme, and Strawberry plants in my Grow Towers. It ate the leaves on the Hot Pepper plants, but left me the Hot Peppers. It wasn’t able to reach the Carrots and Garlic on the top level. It also managed to disturb and damage some of the soft pots and other items out on the patio as it moved around each of the ten Grow Towers.
