Mum had a crisis in the veggie garden!!
Remember the nice plot we allocated for our veggies?
We did a Green Stubby report on how I helped plant the seedlings.
Well, Mum went outs about a week or two after we planted thems and I heard her shriek!
Well the veggie patch attracted these...
We then performed "operation relocate"
The carrots...... gone, totally eaten
The tomatoes..... gone, totally eaten
The beans..... rescued all but two and replanted in a planter
The peas.... rescued and replanted in a planter
Cucumbers..... rescued 4, lost 1 after the replant, they are barely hanging in!
On tops of that we have had really crumby weathers.
Temperatures below normal and 63% less sunlight than averge!
Mum was freaking outs!
I thinks she has it under control now.
