Haha, brilliant! And I’m sure I have three or more equally bad ideas!
I have finally landed on one or three that work in tandem. Flimsy fence strung high(with flash tape) to keep less curious deer out, and mark it to startle them. Then a thin line of liquid slug bait if it is still wet outdoors, then Invisible Fence( made of rotten something) to spray on sprout-ish-sized plants like sunflowers, beans, squash. It repels both deer and bunnies. The stinky rinses off and is far too faint for my nose.
And I plant more(to share). Otherwise I have fifty kinds of open, old seed packets. I do not put Fence on it. Voilá!
