The Buck and the Baby

Yesterday was the day to remove the tomato plants. The days of them yielding ripe tomatoes that aren't stolen by the squirrels are over. There were a bunch of small green tomatoes on the plants so I decided to throw them over the fence to see if the local wildlife was interested. It only took about 2 hours and the deer were checking out the new food selections. First we have one of the bucks that have been hanging around. His antlers are getting longer as he gets older. Notice also how much grayer his coloring is than the baby deer in the second picture. Both seem pretty interested in grazing some of the tomato plant foliage.
