Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne Indiana will be sharing information on How to Keep Deer Away From Your Garden.
Oh dear, there’s a deer in the garden!
So no one wants deer nibbling on their fruits or veggies in the garden. Of course, we have to keep all the yummy stuff to ourselves ;). However, when there is deer in the garden, we should know how to repel them. Sometimes a fence is just not enough.
This flower offends the Olfactory nerve (In other words, the sniffer) of the deer.
Some info about Borage from my Mommy, Becca –
“With a taste comparable to that of cucumber, borage has various culinary applications. Both the flowers and the leaves are edible. The leaves can of course be used as a salad green and the flowers as edible decorations or garnishes, but there are so much more uses of Borage.”
They’re a true blue, hanging in downward facing clusters. Use the leaves while they are young, because as the plant matures, the stalks and leaves become covered with prickly fuzz, similar to squash leaves.
The Borage flower and leave can be used for fever, cough and depression.
We at O.G.G. offer premium service and maintenance with our raised garden beds for 5 years.

A commonly forgotten herb, Yarrow also helps ward of the unwanted deer.
Yarrow is a perennial, native to Europe and Asia and naturalized in North America and most other countries throughout the world. Yarrow is very common along roadsides and in old fields, pastures (And your garden with Organic Gurlz Gardens organic raised beds!)
A Simple Yarrow tea recipe from Becca (My mommy) :
- 1 tsp. dried Yarrow
- Make 1 cup of boiling water and add Yarrow.
- Steep for 10 minutes.
- Sweeten with Organic Honey to taste.
Black Eyed Susan:
Often mistaken for sunflowers, deer aren’t very fond of this flower.
Warning from O.G.G.: Black Eyed Susan’s can be territorial; they tend to squash out other flowers growing near them.
These plants bloom from June to October.
You can make a special Root Tea by Becca to help fight worms, cure colds and reduce swelling –
- Add 5 teaspoons of dried root to a cup of boiling water.
- Steep for a few minutes then strain the tea to get rid of any “hairs”.
