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.

Review: Vitax Pepper Dust

As with all reviews, this is a personal opinion from my experiences, your experience may / will vary. Unfortunately this isn’t a positive review, as the dust hasn’t managed to shift a particularly persistent moggie or two from a patch of my garden which they appear to think is their personal litter tray.

So nice idea, eco friendly and all that is good, but effectiveness 2/10 at best.
