Ya I'm not wanting to spray things with repellents or what ever much less weekly . A I added a couple more pieces of fencing to what I already had up. Eventually another bed will be closed in but I'm not liking the cluttered look around things. Nothing more I can do to protect what I have but to remove one bed to finish off enclosing one I can see from the home.

I like your suggestion the three P's poisonous, prickly or pungents.
You pretty much nailed it with that description as far as what deer leave alone!!!!

Two plants are blooming throughout the garden with abandon, the yellow flowered brown eyed susan, Rudbeckia Triloba, and purple asters and the small flowered white heath asters. All of these plants spread, seed on their own and it is more of where don't you want them then where should I add them.
I only cut the front streetside asters back once this season instead of twice so they are rather tall and glorious, full of skippers, bees and wasps. I usually have lots of light purple anise hyssop at this time but letting so many susans bloom has greatly reduced their number. The hyssop when it seeds attracts our state bird, the lovely Goldfinch so I'll have less of the finches this year.

Sounds like you should remove a few of the susans to allow the others to flourish or they will take it over entirely don't you think?
