Garden update

The veg is doing well, we have ripening strawberries, peas and the cut-and-come-again continues to provide random snacking for me while I’m in the greenhouse.  However, on that front I have to report that the greenhouse has been killed (it’s a plastic cover job) by the local fourlegged evils.  Sharp claws, a convient drop point from my utility roof and plastic do not mix, so on Sunday I moved all the tools and stuff being stored in it back to the shed (the leather gloves were soaked, we’ll see if they dry properly) and removed the cover and cut a piece to protect the metal shelving from the weather.

Thank you local cat owners.  Oh and as various additional methods for repelling your pets from crapping in my garden have failed I’m moving up a notch to the more offensive tools such as the sonic repellers.  Subtle hints do not appear to work for these buggers.  Any recommendations on things which do work and keep the little buggers out of my garden would be appreciated.

  1. my next door neighbour has a sonic repeller – all it does is annoy the humans – my neighbour is gaining in years and cannot hear the high pitch.

    You did try water pistols/watercannons/ sprinklers?

    It would be cruel to suggest that you got a used a catapult and icecubes… it probably wouldn’t hurt them enough to break the skin, but it would annoy them, I think…

    there are also some plastic boundary strips you can add to fences, so that jumping off points are not commfortable – these are the sanitised version of the old fashioned glass in concrete/barbed wire boundary – won’t actually hurt the cats, but inconveniences them.

    If that is helpful.
