As much as I love our native animals, it is so frustrating to see vegetables denuded after a night’s foraging from possums and wallabies.
I must have a few gourmets amongst them because I have lost basil, parsley, coriander and even chives to go with the tomatoes which are now only stalks with fruit hanging.
It is time for a reality check. If I want vegetables, even in an urban environment, it is time for caging the vegetables in and the animals out. Netting saved the raspberries from blackbirds and I have now put a fire screen around the remaining tomatoes but it is a case of too little too late.
I do have the Satsuma plums still on the tree, uncovered and they haven’t been touched. I am living dangerously.
