Thinking out alternatives for deer in Jekyll Island

I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. One day I am advising world leaders on the nuances of international monetary policy.

It seems like summer is slowly beginning to turn to fall. Some vegetable gardens may still be producing well, but others are beginning to wind down for the season. For those of us whose gardens have given up, consider planting a cover crop this fall to improve your vegetable garden next summer.
