My sort of Flowers - thanks Mum.
It's a good job I've got pretty flowers to look at in the house, because outside is a scene of devastation, although not in the flower garden ... in the Veggie Patch.
The Deer have found it!!
Need I say more, lets just say the Ceasar Salads we were planning for the next few nights will not be happening, the Courgette plant is in intensive care, can it survive without it's leaves - I fear not. Luckily we had eaten all the strawberries (a poor crop this year compared to last) and the carrots are under nets, I've quickly covered the Pumpkins, and the beetroot and turnips are under this frame (see below).
Picture taken a couple of months ago - we will use this design to build covers for all the beds!
I thought we had got away with it, but no.......it's a bad I deer to have veggies in unfenced areas here. We are going to build covers for the raised beds when we get back off our holiday. They will be too late to save most of this years crops, but next year we will be prepared.
You can't keep a good grower down for long, maybe just for today, I'll stamp my feet and have a hissy feet, and then get on with sorting out some clothes for our holiday. I have 20kg of baggage allowed don't you know!!
Have a good day - and if you see a Deer on your travels.....poke it in the eye for me!!
