There’s been some pretty suspicious activity happening over night in my veggie garden the last few weeks…
My baby marrows have vanished over night!
See that sad crinckled bush to the left? That’s all that was left… There’s now only one lone marrow plant clinging desperately to life. Afraid to go to sleep at night, living in fear of being “taken” like it’s brothers and sisters…
Sorry, losing vegetables so unexpectadly makes me emotional.
My brocolli has been ransacked!
Something has been chomping on my Chinese cabbage!
Something has been gobbling up my garlic!
My onions are nothing more than chewed-on, spat-out little slithers just left on the ground.
At first the bunnies got blamed. But recent evidence points to something more sinister… something more spikey…
We kept finding clues…
Betty spotted a big hole in the fence…
Something had been scratching and digging to get into the chicken coop…
Speaking of chickens… Look how big the little chicky chicks are getting!
They’re almost as big as Mommy hen!
No Betty and Poppy! Chicken ala King is not on the menu today!
Where were we? Oh yes, back to the investigation…
The evidence was mounting up.
So we set a trap at the entrance of the veggie garden to try and catch the culprit red handed.
But for days the trap would remain empty and all we were catching was nosey Betty dogs!
Until one lucky morning we came out to see this cheeky (prickly) bugger waiting for us!
He confessed to everything, and we struck a deal that we’d let him out of jail if he promised to never return to the scene of the crime! So off he went to his new home on the other side of the valley far away from his previous life of crime.
Bye-Bye Mr Spike. Remember, just say no to lettuce! A life of crime is behind you now.
Now to start all over again… *Sigh*
