Plants defying marsupials

I have had such a battle this year with possums and pademelons in my garden in suburban Sandy Bay.

At one level I am happy that marsupials roam in the city, at another level I am as frustrated as the next vegetable grower that everything I have worked to grow is at the mercy of our furry friends. It has become a battle of the wits.


Having lost everything from tomatoes, chives, parsley to native violets to animals.


I have taken serious precautions, now bringing the fire screen into action to stop access.


As you can see, I am having success with silver beet and spinach now established.
