Made the mistake of buying a house with a river at the bottom of the garden. Constantly floods and also contains arsenic from an old mill nearby.

What’s eaten this lettuce? Turned my back for a couple of hours and this is what I find 🤬

Oh no! Something's eaten our Kale. Mind you, I did tell the grower he needed some mesh to protect them and others 🙄I hope you don't lose anymore 💚💚

It just got decimated over the course of an hour or so this afternoon, very odd and no sign of whoever did it! @midnightgardener Mesh might be the answer, I’ll see if there’s any left tomorrow, it hasn’t touched any of the others so far!

Could it be a pigeon? I had something stripping leaves off my Cosmos and then actually saw a pigeon doing it! @itstillhelen

@lilybee Yes, I think it was, I put a net over and it’s stopped whatever it was. Slugs are still a problem but I’m fooling them too!
