  2. Yes - were the girls elsewhere? Hope they've now had a juicy snack to exact a little revenge.

  4. For something that crawls so slowly, they certainly devour vegetation quickly, don't they? It looks like we both posted about a similar event today!

  5. Hmm, that looks quite a lot like my kale! Good luck with persuading the undergardeners to do some 'target snacking'!

  6. And overnight Down Under, a possum ate half of a big, still-green tomato.
    Nice to see you're up to strolling around and posting.

  9. Hi everyone!

    The under gardeners have been banned from this corner of the veg patch because they prefer to eat the grapes which are right nextdoor to the Cavolo Nero!!!!!

    I've had to sacrifice the Kale to the caterpillars this year :(
