We’ve outsmarted them!

November 10, 2009

It’s doing the trick.  The new protective mesh is keeping the voracious rabbits off our spring greens.

They’ve been hopping all over it and have left droppings everywhere, but they haven’t been able to find a way underneath.

This expensive mesh is proving to be a worthwhile investment. The rabbits can’t chew holes in it, it doesn’t disintegrate and it lasts for years – unlike fleece.

The growing team has managed at long last to plant several rows of garlic sets and sow some broad beans for overwintering. We’re hoping these will give us an early crop next year.

All being well, the rabbits won’t touch the garlic (although earlier in the year they did have a gnaw at some of the onions).

Thanks to expert growers Jane, Jeremy and Mark plus regular Sunday team members Kitty, Mark, Mike H and Mike S.
