One year I planted seeds from pumpkins grown the previous year, and the new pumpkins were dark green.

Yari, I've never heard of that, do you bust them up so it's easier for the deer to eat them?
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

last year I planted hubbard squash.  I didn't think the deer would bother them, but they did.  they kept gnawing on them until they got into the softer inner part.  then they went to town on them.

Mad - Normally the deer eat the greens first, then will bust the pumpkins open with their hooves later.  Somewhat like a turnip patch (greens first, then the turnips).

the squash have harder shells. my deer 'asked me' to break them open for them. once open, they were gone
