Sparrows Stripping Chard

Bob

The chard is behind the rhubarb so all I can see from the house is sparrows disappering behind them and the chard shaking so I cant really tell what the little fellows are doing

Could be the Woodies  

Just stopped Mr Fox getting an injured Woodie

how true

There was a famous saying in the 60s and 70s

With children we love them and with sadness we let them go............or something like that

And if they dont come back and visit we hunt them down and kill them !!

Its a good idea just to ask for their brochure in the post just as a handy beside you source of reference but it does contain some complete waste of time items !!

Slugs have 250,000 teeth and the UK has the most slugs in Europe !!

70% of the little devils are underground

Good hunting !

My neighbours son eats them so perhaps you could borrow him for a week !!
