Super Seeds

Feeding deer

I love the peace and tranquility of the Maine woods, especially waking up on a crisp winter morning like today and discovering deer tracks all over our property.  Up until this weekend, they’ve enjoyed a mild winter with plenty to eat including the endless mounds of acorns we raked up this fall. Then we got 30 inches of snow.  Fortunately for the deer, we put out food blocks for them to gnaw on if they get really hungry.  All that nutrition condensed in a big block is a convenient way to get extra nutrients.  You can do the same thing this winter without trudging through three feet of snow.  I promise that it will also come in a slightly smaller package.
