We have a infestation of mice in the veg patch. I'm missing my cat!

re mice in the veg i found a regular light dusting of cheap extra hot chilli powder worked a treat

at the mo i have an arrangement with sammy mouse and his family, i feed him, he only takes a few treats in a very neat manner. a harvest mouse sitting in a hollow tomato is very cute

Looking good Slim, you're just missing a few beehives.

Loving the agreement you have with your mice DPack.

I used to have an agreement with the cat. She ate them.

Your garden looks good Slim. Pity the bees moved.

Dpack, do you really have harvest mice? They are a bit different than your average mouse, but all have their down side. We get wood mice in the wood, and they are really cute, but still leave a nasty mousy smell behind them. If we see one they seem completely oblivious to us and just wander around as usual.

The autumn sown onion sets and broad beans are doing well, despite having got going in January after a warm spell. I was worried they would get hit by the cold wind and freeze we had later...and hopefully that was long and cold enough for the garlic!
Planted more onion sets last week and they are up and running already
The strawberries are flowering nicely as is the PSB.
We're busy eating the spinach and rocket from last year's sowing ..I really ought to sow fresh but the next step is construct the next deep bed, when we have time/money
