Whilst it can be said that ‘moving forward’ in the election context has sometimes resulted in inertia , not so for the possums in my garden. They have been focused and are single mindedly and without distraction ‘moving forward’ from vegetable box to vegetable box laying waste to everything in their path.
The photo for our lovely calendar was taken in late June. The veggies in the box were thriving with rows of carrots, parsnips and leeks, and flourishing silverbeet at both ends. Now sadly the carrot tops have gone, the silverbeet is decimated, and even the leeks have had some of the tops eaten off. The parsnips have fared slightly better, although they have been trampled under the weight. So what must be now the healthiest possums in Hobart having taken to heart the message that, Greens Are Good For You! So I have resorted to nets.
