I agree Clari - we should never under-estimate the damage caused by toxoplasmosis infection - as someone whose career involved the assessment and support of severely physically and learning disabled children, I can confirm that infection by toxoplasmosis results in some of the most severely disabled children in the UK.

Hi Pam and welcome 

It would be good if you could start a new thread for your query, with a descriptive title, so that people with an interest in this sort of problem will see it - this thread has a title about potatoes and your question may not be spotted. 

Click on Forum Topics at the top of the page, then choose an appropriate Topic and click on Start New Thread (or something like that).

How do I deter/ catch thieves from my allotment

Best to get Community Police involved.   If they're slow to react lobby your local councillors - it's the council that pays the police and gives them some priorities.

I would stay in the shed with a few pals just as pentillie post did but would catch one and send out a warning to them all.Take him home if under 18 years old for his dad & mum to deal with him hopefully. 

Not sure how you'd persuade him/her to go with you - if you use force/restraint that's likely to be Common Assault in my understanding. 

Scary looking tree branches in my garden

I always get a thrill when I see a well-lichened tree - there's something almost magical about them - I suppose it's that when I was a child the air pollution was so bad that the only place I saw them was in woods on deepest Dartmoor or West Wales.
